Here are the iPad app reviews and articles I published in April, May and June, 2016.

Review: iPad App, Doodlecast Pro Video Whiteboard

Doodlecast Pro is an app I included in my List of Digital Storytelling Tools. It’s a useful app, not just for children but for everyone. Basically you draw/write, and record your voice as you do (or not - you could just make an image with it if you wanted).

It’s a great way to introduce children to writing poetry because it supports them and gives them a concrete framework to operate in. Acrostic Poem is available as an online interactive, in iOS and in Android. There are also lesson plans to support it. Read more at The Book Chook.
