Using The Show Me App on the iPads in Math

We have started a new action research project involving the iPads.  We want to see if using the Show Me App will increase creativity and higher order thinking when solving word problems.  The students are given an open ended problem to do in their math journals, while the iPad group (2 girls and 2 boys) are given the iPads to record and playback their finding to the problem.  The problem today was:

MaCayla found frogs in the pond.
Some were green and some were brown.
How many green frogs did she find?
How many brown frogs did she find?
Use pictures, numbers, and words to show the frogs.
See the example below and let me know what you think.
