Last week I ran a workshop on fishing where the fish are at The Parent Zone Digital Families event in London. I was asked if I’d share the slides so here, as promised, they are!
Schools from 9/10/15 (GMT evening) will be able to use all of Blippit IO’s tools for FREE!
- Blippit IO App Maker
- Blippit IO PureCode Python (text based coding)
- Blippit IO Spotlight (video web conferencing)
You’ll be able to set up unlimited student and teacher users accounts within your school to use all of Blippit IO’s tools whenever and wherever you choose (subject to the t’s and c’s). *Schools can upgrade their FREE Account to ‘unrestricted use’ at any time as per usual.
App Maker Privacy
Administrators can now choose whether or not to publish a student’s app onto Planet Blippit
App Maker Animation
We have re-designed both the Image Widget and Slideshow Widget so that you can now upload animated Gif files into your app. These clever little files can be seen on any mobile device and have seen a resurgence in popularity recently. Here’s an example of such an animated gif featuring Blippit IO PureCode Python.
Here’s another showing animated images in the rebuilt Slideshow Widget. Don’t watch them too long though or you may go a bit mad.
Image Widget Editor
Upload and press ‘Edit Image’ to open up the powerful image editor right there in Blippit IO App Maker. Add text, Instagram-type filters, stickers and more sophisticated effects with ease and speed. This in it’s own right transforms what users can creatively achieve in their app projects.
*free accounts are not available for home-school arrangements or schools using single-sign on platforms in the UK. Schools using single0-sign on setups can of course register outside of their single sign-on platform but they would then have to log in outside of their normal habits and subsequently have more than a single sign on account to manage.
