If you teach Computing or STEM with iPad, you probably need an Everything Machine

The iPad is one hell of a device. I’m not the first person to say it or think it but there you have it. It really is. Yes, competitors and Android fans will tell you that their devices have done it for years, but it’s never been quite as good as on the iPad.

One of my favourite uses in Science I’ve seen in recent years was where an old colleague of mine used an app that measured motion using an app by swinging an iPad on a pendulum as part of one of his Physics lessons. Sometimes he just threw the iPad across the classroom too. Phenomenal (although make sure if you repeat it you put it in an Survivor case!).

A new App on the App Store caught my eye last week. It’s called ‘The Everything Machine‘. It gives users the opportunity to invent and create so many cool little algorithms and sequences within it that react with the different sensors and other elements within the iPad. It is just too cool for words and I can imagine it being a massive hit for teachers and kids alike.
