Directions with iPads

I was inspired by an Apptivity from the lovely Miss Ward today as we used directional language in our maths lesson. I made some grid layouts in Doodle Buddy and used the stamp tool to place characters and obstacles within the grid. Then using Flick, I sent the pictures to the students and they saved them in Explain Everything. They then had to use two colours to show a route and an alternate route for the character to get to the ‘finish’. They had write and verbally record the directions. Students were so engaged in this task that some extended themselves, seeing how many possible routes they could show. Thanks Miss Ward!
