Teacher-made Apps for the BYOD Classroom

Brendan Polley Biology/Physics Teacher from Mississauga, ON

My school board has recently encouraged a BYOD (bring your own device) policy for our classrooms. I've always strived to bring technology into the classroom but this new initiative has inspired me to develop my own educational games for student devices.

How are other educators utilizing BYOD?

Here is a link to my own game based on the Ontario 9-12 science curriculum:

I'd love to get some feedback

We are very excited to share with you our newly posted app on the itunes store. This is an interactive fiction book for children (based on real science), titled "Save the Corals."

We invite you to download the app at the itunes store. Your students will enjoy reading and engaging in moving the story forward as they explore possibilities of saving corals and the 4,000 plus marine life that live in this ocean village. Here's the itunes link to the app:
