Exploring Apps

Here are some of the apps our students have on their iPads. Explore these apps to become familiar with how they work and what students can use them to do.

StoryKit

Create an electronic storybook. Make use of the little gaps in life - on the sofa after dinner, in the back seat of the car, or on a train - to do something creative together.

To create your story:

  • Write some text.

  • Illustrate by drawing on the screen, taking a photograph of something you see, or drawing on paper and then photographing the paper, or attaching photos from your album.

  • Sounds can be recorded for telling your story or as sound effects.

  • Layout the elements of your story (text boxes, images, and sound clips) freely by dragging them or pinching to resize.

  • Add, reorder, or delete pages from your book.

Your story is always saved in your iPhone. Carry it with you and work on it any time. Upload your story to the StoryKit web server and email a link to the story from within the app. No account is necessary. Stories are private.
