An app that primary school students will love. Book Creator allows pupils to create and publish their very own digital books on the classroom iPad. From adding text, photos, videos, music and much more, Book Creator is an innovative and creative app for your classroom.
The app is a great way to test pupils knowledge on a topic that you've just covered by asking them to create a factual book on the subject. It can also be used as a way to exercise their imaginations and explore their creative writing skills by tasking them with creating a story book. You could even try a 'one page a day' task where each day a different pupil will have a turn at creating a page which must continue on from the previous pages!

Spiral consists of 5 different activities which are aimed at secondary school students. These activities include Quickfire Lite which allows teachers to ask a question to the class and students can answer via the app on their smart device. Not all students have the confidence to raise their hand to answer questions in front of their peers so this is a great way to get everyone involved and also helps teacher to identify pupils that may be struggling in certain areas.
There's also Clip which is a video activity. Simply paste any video URL from YouTube into the platform to play to the class. You can pause the video at any point and add a question where pupils will be able to type their answers. This ensures pupils are fully focus on the information in the video as you can pause at any time to ask a question. You could even take it up a level and turn it into a competition where the first student to answer wins that round!
