ICT resources

These apps have been recommended to me by someone who works in Nottinghamshire County Council so I cannot vouch that they will work but something to use that is a bit different maybe? 

Do ink 

 

This app has two elements - one to design animations and the other allows children to film themselves doing different activities - news report, story, weather report, daily diary entry. This is an app designed for an ipad however there are similar ones for android or other tablets out there if you search for them. Click on the image and it will take you to the website which explains more about how it works. 

 

Scratch

 

This programme works on ipads, androids and web browsers. It allows you to program your own stories, animations and games which you can then share with others. There are two levels - scratch junior for children aged 5-7 and then scratch for children aged 8 to 16. Click on the image above which will take you to the website to join, register and use. 

 

These apps are designed to support children with their learning however remember to think about your child's online safety when using online apps and applications. Remember children to check with your parents before signing into anything you're not sure about and to not give out your real names or any personal information!
