iSwifter is an awesome app for the iPad which is basically a web browser but enables flash websites, online games etc to run on the iPad.
This is huge. Why? It means that teachers and students have more possibilities for each lessso and can explore most content and sites without issues. BrainPOP.uk, www.kwarp.com/portfolio/grammarninja, readwritethink.org along with the learning federations interactive learning objects. iSwifter works well with a most sites. This is such a value add to the iPad. Currently free, we have had our students purchase it, now our only issue is getting it to work on our network. Unblocking the iSwfiter website only partially made it work, the problem is after you put in the url for your website the last part of the app will not go through our school proxy but wants to bypass it. Our head technician is working on a solution so that all learners with an iPad at RSC can use this fantastic app fully. It is vital we can make this work as it opens creates more flexibility and possibilities for teaching and learning.
