iOS Educational Apps that don't work under iOS11

Before you update school iPads etc check to see what works or not. Update one iPad if you're not sure. Apps will NOT work at all under iOS11 if they are 32bit only. You can check which apps are not going to work before updating by navigating to, Settings -> General -> About -> Applications on your iOS device. There you’ll get a list of the apps currently installed on your phone that haven’t been updated for iOS 11 yet.
The other item that will be handy is when apps update themselves to use the new Files App system on iOS11. This will be useful possibly for exchanging and retention of files more easily.
Add what you find to the list in comments below and I will update!

Planning for 1 to 1 Devices

We are looking to do a 1 to 1 computing program in our school. Currently, we are intending to start with our Year 5 classes and each year roll out the 1 to 1 to a new set of pupils and teachers. This will allow us to gradually build up expertise, systems and infrastructure. Here is the one to one planning mindmap that I have put together so far.... any thoughts? I am also trying to put together a best list of links for research... here is what I have so far....

Promethean ActivBoard Browsing

I have just put together this method of browsing across this method of setting up your browser in activboard and to use links with the web in fullscreen or near fullscreen mode as you wish. It also provides and efficient way to use links within your school collaboratively.
1. Setup a delicious account (I researched a number and found this the best, especially with the Firefox delicious addon and the simple proxy addon to make using proxies easier in Firefox) (Be careful at this stage uploading large collections into delicious as I can't seem to download them as backup yet - have 5000 links)
2. Download and use Fluid which allows you to create a specific browser just for your bookmarks that can point to your "starter" site. It also has awesome fullscreen and minimum browser toolbars. (Make sure you choose under preferences...> advanced..> Allow browsing to all URLs to keep within your created browser )
3. Place a shortcut to the "Browser to your site" in the dock and I reckon you could not go simpler for a collaborative effort of organising, rating and using bookmarks or favourites (favorties) in your school
4. Enjoy
Medbury Logo

What next- I am going to setup one pointing to a blank page on startup and use this as the default browser from within my flipcharts as it will provide better use of screen.

I have attached a copy of our Medbury browser that you can use as a sample (does not allow access to all our links but enough to give you an idea)

Interested in feedback....
