Back in the good old days of my very early teaching career, I had this wild idea that teachers could digitise text from worksheets and link them to a Word Document via the hyperlink option. Students could click on the links and get their work in electronic format. For my master plan to work I needed something to change our grubby old photocopied thousands of times worksheets from 1982 (you know the ones) into digital, editable text. I found a cool program called AABBY Finereader which did exactly that. Several years later, AABBY and I have reunited, although this time their scanner app FineScanner is getting the once over.
I do love an app which streamlines my life and de-clutters it from the hell which is otherwise known as paper, and my current weapon of choice in this crusade is Scanner Pro by Readdle. I was interested to see how AABBY’s FineScanner would stack up against it, given that AABBY have a long and distinguished history in converting paper to digital. [click to continue reading…]
Numolition is a simple but addictive game.
There are many levels. Completing a number of levels will unlock challenges.
How to play:
When you start the game you are walked through some simple levels. The idea is to explode groups of matching numbers. You can explode numbers that are next to each other. You can move the boxes to get numbers next to each other. You can also move a box with a number on top of another box and it will create a new box with the sum of the two numbers. You can only “add” numbers up to the number 9. Here is an example from Level 8.
Move the top box with “1″ to the left so it is next to the other box with a “1″. Explode the ones. Move the box with the”3″ on top of the box with a “2″ and it will become a box with a “5″. Now you can explode all the 5′s and complete the level.

Speaky is an app which highlights why the iPad is so cool. Very simply, all the app does is read webpages and text to you. However, the way the app is designed, makes the whole process completely streamlined.
I am a big fan of apps which help workflow and make your life easier, and Speaky is one of those apps. Here is the process: [click to continue reading…]
