We received an email a few days ago from a teacher asking about a good iPad app for creating simulated TV shows with students. The apps we suggest below are both from Launchpad Toys which have been acquired by Google a couple of months ago. These are probably among the most popular apps among teachers and educators. Students can use them to unleash their creativity and delve into a world of imagination creating scenes, designing characters, animating cartoons and telling their own stories through beautifully recorded shows.

1- TeleStory
“TeleStory takes you behind the scenes to create and broadcast your own TV show! Record a music video, teleport to an alien planet, film a high-speed-chase, or perform on a reality TV show - TeleStory is a TV studio in your pocket. Here is how it works:

  • Pick a theme, then mix and match over 30 animated scenes to film your own story
  • Craft a script using our playful TV tropes (or write your own)
  • Dress up in 50 different digital costumes with face tracking
  • Perform and record your own show with animated settings and special effects
  • Broadcast your by exporting it to the camera roll and then sharing your creation with family and friends around the world! “
