Modification: ‘Technology allows for significant task redesign’
Stop Motion – Stop motion is a great modification app because it is transforming the way students are learning content, by allowing them to use technology to be engaged with the content and be more creative and critical in their thinking as they learn to be resourceful, logical and creative in their stop motion film. This app is very simple and fun to use. The use of stop motion movie making in the classroom teaches students skills such as planning, editing, publishing and videoing. The app is also very versatile, and can be used across a variety of subjects (The Cateater Team, n.d.) , (Hatten, 2015).
The app FLIPHTML5 is a software app, which allows for the creation of online magazines, product catalogues and digital brochures with a realistic 3D page flip effect. It enhances the reading experience as it allows for interaction with the content (adding links, videos, audio etc. into the online catalogue/brochure) (The Cateater Team, n.d.) .
This app would be an excellent tool to help students create a multimedia digital brochure, where the students incorporate themselves talking in a video into the brochure. This software/ technology can be used across a variety of subjects. By students using an app that includes multimedia, the students are developing real –life skills related to technology, learning to present in appealing ways, research, planning and organisation skills and how to think critically and creatively (Zheng, 2016), (Walsh, 2015).
