There were two things that I was looking forward to playing around with today. One was my Google Drive account. Sadly, when I tried, I got this message…
Sad frowny face. :-( But, Google has given me the opportunity to find out when it is. Sort of smiley face.
The other thing I wanted to do was to explore the Professor Garfield series. The Anti-Bullying application is but one in a series. There’s also
- Professor Garfield Online Safety
- Professor Garfield Fact or Opinion
- Professor Garfield Forms of Media
I really liked the comic interrupted by learning activity and wanted to check out the others in the series. I was not disappointed.
If you liked one, you’ll like the entire series. I think that if I had access to one or two iPads or more in the classroom, that I’d certainly be using these applications in a media awareness centre. They work well as a standalone application but I can just see the excitement and the discussion when you pair up a number of students learning together around a single unit.
Intrigued? Go and download the series – they’re free – and check them out.
