Apps for Education – Flipboard

 Redefining learning

 

What is Flipboard? 

Flipboard allows you to create your own personal magazine by collecting web links, photos, videos, hash tags and twitter feeds. You can then flip through your pages just like a real magazine.


Tried and tested

  • From a professional development point of view I’ve created magazines based on my most commonly followed hash tags or individuals twitter feeds.
  • For resources which I use with students in class, I created a magazine made up of the tweets from @revisejustmaths. Each page is made up of either a GCSE exam question or solution from their superb tweets.
  • Getting students to create there own magazine is where learning is modified and redefined. This can be done in class or as a homework task and creations shared, discussed and moderated amongst peers.
