One of the most recognisable table designs in the world is the Periodic Table of Elements – the table of all the chemical elements arranged by order of their atomic number. Usually represented in rows, it’s arranged so that elements with a similar atomic structure appear in vertical columns.  

Over the years, several others have taken this iconic design and used it to represent all manner of other things, often to the upset of chemists, but the design makes for a striking layout for sharing items around a particular theme.  

One person who has done this is our Head of Education, Mark Anderson, who has created numerous different designs to share around a plethora of topics, such as apps to use in the classroom, books to read and people in education to follow on social media.  

In our first edition of R.I.S.E. Magazine, Mark worked with R.I.S.E. Editor and Product Manager, Kat Cauchi, to curate and create a new Periodic Table of iPad apps for primary schools.

The table is broken down into nine different categories of apps based on their potential uses in the classroom: 

  •  Learning 
  • Literacy 
  • Science 
  • Teaching 
  • Computing 
  • Creativity 
  • Collaboration 
  • Numeracy 
  • Demonstrating.  

Some examples of the 82 apps featured include Book Creator, Jamboard, Quizlet and JigSpace – and more!  

To get your copy of the periodic table, simply visit the R.I.S.E. Magazine page where you’ll also find all editions of the magazine.  

Whilst you’re there, why not sign up to be notified of when every R.I.S.E. goes live? This way, you’ll get instant access to our magazine that’s jam-packed full of edu-goodness and education community articles, guides, resources, and thought-leadership pieces!  

From the magazine, you’ll be able to download a PDF where you can easily print off a copy of the table to put up in your staff room. Also, if you’re looking to find those apps on the pesky App Store, don’t worry, the Periodic Table in the magazine is interactive, so each app icon in the PDF is clickable, taking you straight to its location on the App Store.
