    Thanks

  4. Hi Jacqueline,
    thanks for the feedback- I am planning on making a new version for adults (and I’ll try to include the photo feature). Watch this space!

  5. Hi Kim,
    thanks for the feedback. I’ll add a print feature over the next couple of weeks- most students that I’ve tested it with have had their own iPads so they just work off the screen but if this would be useful it should be easy to do.
    Cheers Hatt

  6. Hi Kim,
    the print feature will be added in the version which should be out March/April. Sorry for the wait!

  7. I have bought your app but I can’t download your PDF from your website.
    Cheers.

  8. I really like the concept behind the organization apps, however I was disappointed at the end. I work with students that really struggle with writing and typing. After 30 minutes of working on organizing thoughts and then typing in each section of the organizer, I thought it would take that and put it into paragraph form. Anyway that is possible? Otherwise the student will have to take and retype their information so they can turn it in.

  9. Hi Cory,
    thanks for your feedback! The reason I designed the Graphic Organiser apps this way was because of the way my students were using the paper planners. I used it in the classroom as a tool for them to organise their thoughts & their essayss- I found it just took too much time for them to use complete sentences in the planning stage. I would have them sit the iPad on their desk with their ‘dot point’ plan and then write their essays making sure they included all of the components from the planner. It’s really interesting to hear how other teachers are using the apps and what changes they would like to see – I’m going to revise all of the Graphic Organiser apps in the next month or so (it will be a free update), so I’ll definitely keep your suggestions in mind. How about an email of the text option? That way they can edit it and improve it in MS Word. I’ll see what I can come up with.
    Cheers

  10. Hi,
    I really like your ‘What’s on today?’ App, it is nice and clear and easy to use. Is there any chance that there could be an option to edit the activity titles or pictures?
