Using the ‘Play School art maker’ application for younger students

The ‘Play School art maker’ would be a great application to be used for developing certain literacy and technology skills in younger students. It is easy to navigate (great inbuilt scaffolds), engaging and utilises characters and contexts of great familiarity to students – harnessing the powerful medium of popular culture. This application lends itself particularly well to helping students develop the skills of thinking imaginatively and creatively to retell and recreate familiar texts. It also provides them with a forum to experiment with iPads and how they can create multimodal texts to achieve particular purposes for certain audiences.
