The Jacobite RebellionsAn Educational Multimedia Resource

This resource has been written and developed by Graham Gaw, a primary school teacher from Edinburgh.
"Despite there being over 275,000 apps available for the iPad there was nothing suitable to use in the classroom whilst learning about the Jacobite Rebellions. After some research it became apparent that making an app is quite an undertaking (often costing between £50,000 and £250,000 to develop) and would be very impractical. So, I opted to make an iPad optimised website instead that can run as a web app.
In addition, I have also developed a version of the resource that can be used on an interactive whiteboard (IWB) in the classroom. I've moved all the navigation controls to the bottom of the screen so that all children can reach them!
The site has been developed and written with the support of my P6 class and other teachers at the school, many thanks!

IWB Version

The IWB version of the resource has been developed for classrooms without Apple TV so you can display on your interactive whiteboard (IWB) what the pupils have on their iPads. It can also, of course, be used as a standalone multimedia resource for a classroom with an IWB.

The IWB version of the site works best in fullscreen -
press F11 on a PC or ⇧+⌘+F on a Mac before launching the resource.


iPad Version

You must have an internet connection for the iPad version to work successfully.
