Multimedia Apps

Here are some fantastic iPad apps for creating multimedia content. Many of these are great for students to express themselves through the use of images, audio and video:

Film-making & Animation

  • Superhero Comic Book Maker
  • Princess¬†Fairy Tale¬† MakerSuperhero Comic Book Maker app logo
  • Draw & Tell HD

These first three are fantastic free apps, with the ability to add stickers, backgrounds, draw and then record audio. Lovely to enabling students to express themselves creatively.

  • Chatterpix Kids – this app is lovely for encouraging communication – add a mouth to any image and record your voice.
  • Green Screen by DoInk – record students in front of a green screen (or coloured wall), remove the background and superimpose them on a background of your choice. Good for pupil voice, social stories, news reports and retelling events.
