Tech directors have been struggling with managing large numbers of iOS devices in their schools since the iPad bandwagon got rolling. With the iPad3 announcement, Apple also rolled out the new Apple Configurator to replace the previously existing iPhone Configurator that they recommended for also managing iPads. This app comes free for any Mac running OSX Lion and can be downloaded from the App Store.
This app, intended as a way for parents to create narrated bedtime stories for their children, could be a great digital storytelling tool for a broader audience. Students can create a movie that incorporates clay-mation figures and their own narration. It’s Free and has potential.
