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!
