The advent calendar of educational iPad apps day 13 – Microsoft Office Lens

Microsoft Office Lens

This is a very useful app for teachers running a class blog. Over the last few years I have spent a great deal of time photographing, cropping and editing pictures of children’s work to publish on class blogs.

Microsoft office Lens takes the pain out of this process. You still need to take the pictures, however, one bulk import and it does the fiddly bits for you – pictures are cropped and adjusted to the size of the piece of paper.

It’s also useful for anyone (like me) who tends to take notes on random pieces of paper and then lose them. With Office Lens you can capture and file them away safely on your Ipad.

These examples from a year 2 e-safety lesson were edited in Office Lens.
