Yesterday was my day to have a taste at being on the leading edge. It was yummy.
Yesterday, Wildscreen's ARKive released their app Survival (#survivalapp). I saw the announcement the day before. Sweet, I thought, I'll look into it tomorrow. But it will probably cost money. At least I can download it onto my personal device and see if its something I want to purchase for the school.
Lucky for me, Survival is free. Yes, free. really, really. And lucky for my students, too, because its already synced onto our iPads. Wheee! This is one fun app ... and did I mention its educational? What isn't there to love about this app?
ARKive site, a great research tool for any class digging into endangered animals. Survival challenges players to engage in 4 different mini games that test knowledge about endangered animals. The games come in a rapid-fire succession until time is exhausted. Get a question right, get more time. Get a question wrong, the right answer pops up, but you lose time.
Ten minutes left of my lunch break means I could probably unlock the Kimodo Dragon. I'm off to play Survival and hopefully you're off to download it from iTunes or the Android Market. :-)
