TinyTap is my favorite tool for creating your own educational games. TinyTap lets you create games on your iPad and or Android tablet. Games that you create can be played by your students on their iPads, Android tablets, or in the web browser on their laptops. This week TinyTap introduced a new game format that you can use. That format is called Tap n' Type.
TinyTap's Tap n' Type format allows you to create games in which students type letters and or numbers to complete a puzzle. See Tap n' Type in action in the video below or click here to try a game.
Applications for Education
TinyTap was already my favorite tool for creating educational games for elementary and middle school students. The addition of the Tap n' Type feature just bolsters TinyTap's utility. Tap n' Type could be excellent for creating math games and word games as well as the simple identification games that TinyTap has always offered.
