Second Graders are rocking the iPads!
They will be spending the majority of their time in Sketchbook Express, a free on the iOS network. I like Sketchbook Express for the younger students because it has powerful features but a fairly simple interface. There is a Gallery that shows thumbnails of saved work, and a sketch interface for creating, that has a total of 10 command icons across the top. Even still, working in any drawing app can be confusing. I am working with students to have them understand what attributes of their digital brush (the mark they will make) can be changed and what settings make sense as we try to create line drawings.
