How did you find out about TinyTap and what do you use it for?
I found TinyTap by doing a Google search for interactive games to play online.
What is the best part of creating a game? What do you hope to achieve in the long term?
The best part of creating a game is when it is being played by kids as their eyes light up when they learn, tap and interact with the game.
Which feature do you like the most?
I love that their are a number of ways you could add interactive features to your game, like tapping, writing, creating puzzles etc.
Where do you get inspiration from?
My inspiration mainly comes from my own students and kids I teach. If I feel they need more help in a particular way, I create a game to help motivate them and potentially guide them in understanding concepts a lot better.
How would you inspire other teachers to use TinyTap successfully?
Teachers should use TinyTap alongside their own hands-on activities and lessons, it’s a great way to assess individual learning and development.
What tip would you give to new creators?
Try to play around with the tools on TinyTap before you publish a new game, just so you can get a feel for how the games work. Also, use PowerPoint to create your slides if you want a more personal touch.
