I suppose I wasn’t surprised to hear when I got a message from Edware Learning that the company had released their first iPad app, Know Your Ireland. Luke Curley, the man behind Edware Learning, is one of the most enthusiastic, creative, education providers in Ireland. Know Your Ireland has continually adapted to the changing times of the 21st century classroom landscape.
Over time Know Your Ireland has spawned offshoots such as Know Your Europe, Know Your World and Know Your USA. As time has gone on, graphics have become high definition, navigation has adapted to Interactive Whiteboard requirements and it has generally got better and better.
In order to create Know Your Ireland for the iPad, Luke had to learn XCode, the language that most iPad apps are made from. XCode is hard to learn, believe me, I tried it! However, Luke tackled the language and has come up with a super product and has probably created the first educational iPad app designed for primary school use. It’s going to be a tough act to follow. The app itself has the same fantastic graphics and quizzes. The other good news is that it’s selling at only €2.99 in the appstore. I would suggest that any teacher with an iPad downloads it immediately!
