Fun for students interested in origami shapes, but would require more from the teacher to connect with content.

My Take

The directions for various shapes are easy to follow through animated steps on a grid background, though I would like to have a connection to fractions and geometry. I was concerned with the ads on the bottom of the screen, the prominence of a link to other apps from the publisher, and the option of a gun as a shape in the program.

How I Use It

This app teaches the steps for how to create various origami designs. I would use it to connect with geometry concepts. My concerns from an educational point-of-view, are that it clearly shows the steps, but doesn't use any geometry or other educationally-based terms. To use the app, I would have students identify the terms as they are working through the directions.
