App of the Day: Skitch – Lisa Stevens Shows us How

SkitchIconI will admit to “borrowing” a video here from my good online pal, Lisa Stevens. Someone who has inspired me for simply ages and someone who makes great cakes. Lisa created this video for the recent Teachmeet Twist event. Though it was only today that I got round to watching it and taking it all in. I have messed around with Skitch with my class, but Lisa brings another dimension to the app. I love this idea of using sketch to annotate and assist in a shape hunt. Last week i accompanied Year 1 on a shape hunt around the school buildings and outdoor area. We created mini videos of our findings, but on reflection it would be good to have included Skitch and have the children annotate what they saw. Skitch could also be a good way to talk about a photo with an adult, for example within a foundation setting.
