iPad, iPad, iPad, Google, Google, Google

Tell me a story about
Des Moines, Iowa* or any other city you know.

  • Warm-up:  List 4-6 things you want to tell me about Des Moines.
  • Use Safari (Internet browser) to go to Google and search for images of Des Moines.  Use connectors like AND to make your search more precise.  Put quotation marks around the words that must stay together, e.g., "Des Moines".
  • Save the images in your camera roll.
  • Log in to 30hands and create an audio slide show to tell me that story.
  • We'll share and critique the stories.

Story tellers can illustrate their stories with drawings.

  • Using didlr, draw a picture about your city.  Share that picture.
  • Draw another.  Share it.

Let's use another tool.

You have used didlr to draw images.  Now try another app.  Use How to Draw Lite.  We will compare the two apps after we share your images.

Let's travel.

  • Try the app Discover USA.  Use stowesummerschool@gmail.com to log in.  I'll  write the password on the board.
  • Evaluate the app.
  • Try the app Discover Paris.  Use stowesummerschool@gmail.com to log in.  I'll  write the password on the board.
  • Evaluate the app.
