Time: 6 weeks
Would I do it again: Yes, maybe, we will see
They got the name right on this one. You will explain everything, over and over and over. I literally invested half a terms worth of one hour lessons on this app, but it was totally worth it.
We made a small tutorial on how to build a fire after our “camping” outing. It was quite a challenge to get this right and I would recommend practicing on the app and writing down step-by-step what it is you want to do. I did not do this. I paid heavily for my laziness. It’s functionality is amazing and if you youtube some ideas you wont be disappointed. It took 6 ipad lessons to complete this task. Yes 6 weeks of painfully slowly instruction. Lets say if I was to enter survivor, I would be able to make a fire rather successfully.
Cons : Incredibly slow to teach, many steps are required
: Hard to teach to a large group because of each individuals pace
: There were some major changes when we did an update. And of course not all ipads are
updated equally, this caused immense frustration!
: *This is the DVD / PVR generation. I had to teach them about recording over long enough so
that it covered the previous work. This was harder than I thought it would be. (see pros)
Pros : Once skills are learnt it will be easy to use the app again
: *You can record the sound / voice over again and again until you are happy.
: No internet needed!
: The final product looks quiet amazing and so will you by association.
These are really in all their raw glory. Please don’t judge if you hear my teacher voice being bossy (it was hard work ok!)
I hope to be using this app a lot more in the future. I think I was slightly schooled by this one. But as they say, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
