iPads with new Year 7 students – Comic Life App

The new Year 7 students were very much on the ball with using iPads and were very much raring to go. After successfully obtaining their Bunsen Burner Licence students were asked to create an instruction manual for using a Bunsen Burner safely in a Science laboratory.

Students used Comic Life to produce their comics and worked in small groups of 3 or 4. The students produced some amazing Comics and worked exceptionally well as a team.

The students learnt how to send work from the iPads which will be a massive help later on as this seems to be an issue with some groups. During the last 10 minutes of the lesson students and teachers are frantically trying to share work with peers and practising this skill will hopefully make the end of the lesson panic a thing of the past.
