Even when discovering Apps that shone, standing out from the rest with their educational potential, it wasn't always obvious how they could be used in a sequence of lessons to promote learning. However with some searching, and a heavy reliance on the networking value of Twitter, I discovered some excellent ideas.

Below are copies of lesson plans used for several iPad Games based units including Minecraft, ThemePark, Angry Birds, Temple Run 2 and PixelPress. More detail on the activities, including examples of the work produced and the impact can be found here: http://5tanfieldlea.weebly.com/using-ipads-in-education---support-for-teachers.html
