We are currently very busy building on and extending PurpleMash.com– If you are not sure what I mean by that, why not go and visit http://purplemash.com? Purplemash is an upgrade from our Online Creative Tools and so much more. As of around April the 19th, subscribers will be able to use the tools shown below, alongside 3 additional titles: Maths Games, Simple City and 2Type. They will also be able to use all of our free Apptivities, including Paint and Make, Publish Projects, Display and many more. Of course you don’t need to subscribe to use the Apptivities!!
But now we need your help – we are having lots of discussions around the Look and Feel of the new site, it needs to be simple, navigable and memorable. What would work for you in the classroom? And what would suit your most technophobic teachers and your ICT loving kids? And remember, what may well look good on your widescreen monitor, may not look so good when squashed down on a smaller resolution.
Please look through the screen shots below and give us your views.
The tools currently look like this:
Our Beta site for Purplemash looks like this:
Some of you may have seen some of the mock-up designs that have been floating round, such as the ones below, which is by no means finished, but is clearly a step on from the shot above:
What should the colour scheme be?
How do we organise the menus?
How can we ensure it is easy to navigate?
What have we missed?
Please write your views very clearly in the comment box for this post – as you probably know by now – we are listening.
Perhaps you might want to share your vision of what Mash should look like, please put a link to this image in the comment box or email it to me. I look forward to hearing your views
