Felt Board is a paid app that uses felt textured backgrounds, characters, and objects to engage students in open-ended story telling and imaginative play. The app has a variety of theme based menus from which students drag and drop objects onto a pre-selected ‘felt’ background. Intuitive features like pinching make it easy to resize, turn and scale objects in the scene. The app is also very clever about automatic resizing, for instance automatically resizing the clothes or face a student selects and drags onto an enlarged or reduced body shape. Students can also take a picture of their creation with the built in camera tool or save it to the app’s gallery window. While this app is ideal for younger students, it has a wide variety of storytelling potential, especially in combination with other apps, for older primary aged children. It may also be beneficial for EAL, Learning Support and Counselling.
Felt Board is suitable for Early Childhood, Lower Primary and Upper Primary
