K-12 mLearning Options
Comic Head Android and IOS App: is where students can create comics on any topic. There is a free-lite version and then a full version in the Google Play Store.
For instance: Students can create a comic on a chapter from William Golding's Lord of the Flies or in Social Studies the focus is on the French Revolution and the students can create a comic highlighting key moments during that period. Perhaps, a simple how-to in a chemistry class!
Journal Jar app: is where students can simply shake this app to get a writing prompt!
For Instance: This app is great for the start of an English class for a 15 minute writing exercise!
Shmuppet app: is where students create a podcast or tell a short story with a puppet and send them to their friends via email, Facebook, or Twitter.
For instance: Educators can use this app to help students understand Shakespeare (creating a visual) and to keep the students interested. Perhaps, the students in a drama class use this app to work on their accents and different voices in a specific scene.
StoryKit App: is where students can create detailed books about their lives, what they imagine, or change the ending of a classic story.
For Instance: The story of the Three Little Pigs can be edited or the ending can be altered!
VoiceThread app: is where there is dynamic conversation occurs as students can post and share videos, drawings, and images. Then have their peers can comment on what they upload.
For instance: Similar to the Voicethread we did in our e-portfolios, where we discussed our choice in a certain website to complete our e-portfolios.
