Using png files in Pic Collage – Bug on My Arm

Students in Div. 9 read There’s a Bug on My Arm That won’t Let Go by David Mackintosh.

We used the iPad camera and imported an image as a background into Pic Collage App. Students used png files and captions to show their ideas, exported their work to the camera roll and uplaoded the images to Google Drive.

It’s a multi-step process that is a great way to show learning. Check out the video below of the creations from Mr. Gauvin’s class.

We also experimented with a low tech version of this activity using LEGO.
