I initially set up this blog to document my learning in the iPad Proof of Concept project. I usually post information on my work with Apple products and technology integration. I have had many class blogs on the side for my parent community. I’ve begun another class blog this January. Here is the link if you are interested. http://mrsharrisonk.wordpress.com
I would like to direct your attention to the blog post of our plant inquiry. I’ve embedded photos from the app Pic Collage
http://pic-collage.com/ It’s an app that helps me document student learning. The post explains our entire inquiry process. Here is one shot from Pic Collage to demonstrate the power of the app.
I’ve shared this app on Twitter and I’m amazed at the number of educators who are also using this app effectively in their classrooms. Grade six students use the app and many Kindergarten teachers are finding ways to use the app to demonstrate learning that occurs in their rooms. I think the best thing about Pic Collage is how it has so many ways to export the collages. They can be saved to the Photo Roll, emailed, Tweeted, printed and embedded into blog posts. This enables me to share it with families regardless of the platform they use at home or work.
I would love to hear your ideas on how Pic Collage could be used in the classroom.
