I have been searching for a new inspiration to add to my ‘Digital Storytelling’ unit of work I teach each spring. At present, I use Inanimate Alice (see previous post). I have now found it…!
Epic Citadel, is an app for iOS devices that shows off the power of it’s graphic engine, it’s not really a game but a world you can explore. From an educational point of view it is perfect for many different subjects especially Literacy.
