EdWare’s online game Counties of Ireland Quiz continues to be featured in the Scoilnet Star Site and featured in the INTO Intouch Magazine March and June 2017 issues.
A fantastic video review of both Know Your Ireland and Know Your Europe for iPad by Thomas Creighton. Thomas is behind the excellent TME (Technology Made Easy) website reviewing only the very best Apps for use in education.
An Irish app focussing on Irish Curriculum Primary Geography. This app may be familiar to teachers who have used the PC version of the Know Your Ireland already.
The app is very simply laid out and covers topics such as Provinces, Towns and Cities, Rivers, Counties and Mountains. You can quiz yourself or your students later once you have explored all of the content in this app!
I am delighted to announce that EdWare’s Know Your World geography application has won the Top of the Class Award at AnSeo.net. I want to thank Simon for the review and his kind words: “Just when you think a game can’t get any better, Luke from Edware has released the newest version of Know Your World, a program he has perfected over the last 5 years.”
