App Shed teachersAppshedApp shed allows teachers, or learners, to create free, online, apps, that can be accessed by mobile devices or online browsers

APP SHED  2It is very straight forward to use and has the potential to allow learners to become ‘creators of technology, not just consumers’.

The free student account offers: 1 user, 50MB storage, Unlimited App Downloads, Public/private apps, and is Ad-free.

PawsExplore ~ eSafety

PawsExplorePawsexplore is a website which provides up to date e-safety information. Although there aren’t a wealth of resources, as ICT co-ordinator I have found the visual ideas a great starting point to generate our own school ideas for e-safety.

For example, we will be creating a competition for our children to create their own monitor displays for the dos and the don’ts of e-safety.

The only issue that some schools have faced is that the site may be blocked
because of the word created by the end of paws and the beginning of explore. 🙂

Very useful in terms of creating a foundation for e-safety (and also helping towards our e-safety award evidence!)
