Life Science Through Photography – iPad Showcase
This app is designed for children who are 8-11 years old, elementary science teachers, and anyone interested in photography! This is a truly an educational application. The app contains photographs that pertain to life science on elementary level. Each photograph contains 3 details with audio. A photo album is displayed and a photograph is chosen. The photograph opens in full screen with numbered markers. Tap the markers and view the corresponding detail with optional audio.
The concept for this application was derived from an instructional strategy I used in my elementary classroom. The use of digital photography in the classroom aided in making the abstract concrete and in English language development for students whose first language was not English. Life Science Through Photography provides inspiring photos that will stimulate your child’s curiosity as well as your own!
Using Photography to Build Vocabulary:
Research on language and vocabulary development has shown that children with more experiences have better vocabulary development, and thus, are better prepared to learn, to read, and comprehend what they have read.
