Recently added to the UKEdChat Apple EduApps page is GeoExpert HD for iPad. Highlighted by the developer, this app is a great tool for helping pupils identify countries, capitals and their flags for six geographic areas – North America; South America; Europe; Africa; Asia; Oceania.
Within the app, you can study the area chosen, calling up information of a country which includes the flag, capital city, area, population and population density. Pupils can then be challenged to play a quiz to see how well they have retained the information. The app also allows for 13 different languages, and other options can personalise the app even further.
In our opinion, this is a great app for teaching and learning geography. Pupils can enjoy this individually, or working within a small group. Linked to an interactive whiteboard, it could also be used as a whole-class teaching tool. Priced at £2.99*, the app is available from the Apple App Store. Click the icon below to view.
