PixnTell iPad App

I had a chance to be a guest blogger on Richard Byrne’s resource website FreeTech4Teacher.com and I wrote about how I use an iPad app called PixnTell with my 3rd grade class.  You may go here and check out my post or view the thousands of FREE teacher resources Richard has reviewed.  Below is my blog post on PixnTell.

PixnTell in the Third Grade – Guest Post

I feel that this app could be used throughout K-12 education. I can see students creating “how to” videos in science labs, shop classes, or just around the school building by explaining general student responsibilities. Believing in your students can be a great teaching tool along with giving certain responsibilities to them will help create a safe and respectful place to learn. I can’t speak for all students, but the 3rd graders I worked with loved to be on camera. Digital storytelling apps like PixnTell can also be an engaging way to help share a new math concept or create new endings to a favorite book. I highly encourage you to start using digital storytelling apps with your lessons and in your classroom.
