AR Dino Park

The Year Fours have been using the iPad App AR DinoPark to photograph a Triceratops visiting our school.

These photos would make great story-starters.
Thankyou @elearnjones for introducing us to this app in your session at the Melbourne TeachMeet

Budget storage for iPads

When we first purchased our class set of iPads we needed a secure storage and charging solution. Unfortunately the purpose built trolleys were too expensive.

At $4.50 each these drying racks were a great alternative while we saved up the money.
