Another in a great line of creation and creativity apps, iBrainstorm allows students to collaborate on projects through their iPads. It is essentially a free form drawing and writing app that can allow students to set up flow charts and graphical designs, storyboard their creative writing, or even create notes or comics.
iBrainstorm allows multiple users to create place their ideas on the board as well as add annotations, suggestions and notes through a sticky-pad feature. This is ideal for group collaborative projects and allowing students who might need the added help to map out their thoughts and ideas.
A sister app, iBrainstorm Companion is also available for the iPhone or iPod and allows up to 4 students to work on the same document at once. They can add or create notes and pieces on their iPhone or iPod then “flick” them to the connected iPad to produce their final product.
iBrainstorm would be ideally used in a collaborative, project-based learning environment where students are comfortable with, and responsible enough, to use their own technology independently to produce great content.
