Year 5 App Review - Apps that help them learn.

Miss Martins is a eLearning Reference Teacher at a fantastic systemic Catholic School in Sydney's east. She has been working with Year 5 classes to document which apps they use to concrete their own learning. This is a fantastic way to start a conversation with your kids about how we learn and how individuals have different learning requirements. Wallwisher was the perfect way to document and then share this reflective process. I love the fact that this could then be shared with other students, other classes, other teachers and even with parents. So what were some of the apps these students identified as ones that contributed to their learning. Here we go.....


Virtuoso Piano


I would like to thank Miss Belinda Martins and her Yr 5 classes for sharing such a valuable resource. A big shout out to all the students who contributed. Thanks you very much everyone!!!!!

  1. Thanks for sharing this list! I'm going to try some new ones based on your recommendations. Terrific!

  2. For young children, I would recommend A Jazzy ABC. Its great for parents and kids to use together, on an iPad for example. The kids will be taught their ABCs and will learn about jazz music at an early age. The app itself runs great, the animation and design is quite cute and entertaining. I'd definitely recommend it.
