  9. Using real world resources alongside technology Children choose a digital pebble to “throw” into the pond in the app and a fish will draw the corresponding pattern with a line of bubbles. Children can then follow that line with a finger or stylus. The app does not comment on how close the drawn lines are to the original pattern and the pattern remains until another pebble is thrown into the water. Having physical versions of the pebbles creates a multi-sensory approach and is a very positive way of connecting actions in the virtual world with the real world.
  10. TTS Story Sequencer Hover over video and click play
  11. Using the story sequencer … Pre-record lines from a story on the 6 panels and ask children to sort through pictures and decide which picture to put with which recording. Invite children to create their own images and make their own recordings to go with a story or to record an event. Add pictures to each panel to show a story / record an event and invite children to record some speech / sounds to correspond with the pictures.
