Radiowaves has released an innovative app which is in the Apple app store now.
It is for use by schools, teachers and pupils to create and safely share content from mobile devices.
Pupils of all ages can upload video, audio, blogs and images, post comments and take part in competitions instantly from an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. Specially designed teacher tools allow educators to quickly take creative learning outside the classroom and easily manage their student’s social media work anywhere. The app – called MakeWaves – can be freely downloaded from the Apple app store now.
Whilst anyone can view content, for security reasons a Radiowaves account is required for users to post content. Optional teacher tools can be purchased from within the app. An Android version will also be available in the Google Play store soon.
Download the app at http://www.radiowaves.co.uk/makewavesapp or search for MAKEWAVES in the app store.

I posted this late last term, but it is so good I have reposted it so that none of our newer followers miss it.
As we expect more from technology, do we expect less from each other? Sherry Turkle studies how our devices and online personas are redefining human connection and communication — and asks us to think deeply about the new kinds of connection we want to have.
