I love finding apps that encourage children's imagination and ideas. Pirate Scribblebeard's Treasure is an app designed to foster creativity and playful exploration, demonstrating the power of an iPad as a tool for learning. Based around the theme of pirates, pirates Oscar and Josephine take children on an adventure. Each page children are gently guided through the theme of the story creating their own illustrations that come 'alive' through animation. The story can be read and recreated many times.
Check out the developer's YouTube video:
This app is currently free through iTunes so give it a go and create your own pirate treasure!
