EYFS - Using tablets to record observations

I presented to an e-learning conference today, sharing my experience of using mini-iPads to record observations. If this is something you are interested in, you may find the following slides useful...

Update : Early Years FSF produce a system called Tapestry...well worth a look...Link

  1. Also Introduce this learning app to your school for kids, Home KG is an educational app for iPad, therefore your kids will be allowed more space to learn, trace out and enjoy activities in a better way.

  2. Nice Article, So when you visit Good Playgroup In Chennai
    look to see if teachers smile and are generally encouraging of children. Look to see how the teachers interact with the other children in the classroom and if there seem to be strong connections between them. Also talk to parents at the school about their experience.

  3. I laughed at the Temple Run comment. :)

    Very interested in the 'minimal training' required aspect. My background is in the UK, but I'm in Malaysia now, where people don't really take observations, but I'd be very interested to try, especially with the Orbit app you mentioned.

    Things around here don't really last 3 years though, if you get what I mean.

    Warmest regards,

  4. Can't find orbit early years app but very interested in finding out more

  5. Here's the orbit website address for you...

  6. I am an eyfs teacher and love the ease of using 2simple on an ipad mini but the one thing that does bug me is when I see practitioners walking around with their heads stuck in an ipad taking endless observations rather than engaging with the children and consolidating and extending their learning through interacting with them.
