Fís iPhone and iPad App
Fís is a wonderful project in Ireland that allows primary school children to make films. Each year there is an award ceremony and children are invited to showcase their work with an overall winner selected at the end. It is an invaluable way to teach children lots and lots of great skills.
Due to the lack of funding for training, Fís have had to think outside the box. They have uploaded all their lesson plans – a complete course in digital video creating – to their web site, http://www.fis.ie. However, lately they have expanded further and they created an iPhone and iPad app which allows users to run the complete course on these devices.
In even better news the app won the best Education App in the Irish
Appy Awards. Congratulations to the guys at Fís – an innovative establishment who aren’t letting the current problems in Ireland destroy their vision.
