It is my opinion that iPads offer students of all ages the ability to quickly create learning artifacts, and that once you show them a few apps they can make their stuff quickly and then share it. I said something just before lunch that has to be true of creating with apps - the first thing I look for in an app is being able to export work and share it.
The goal of my presentation was to have teachers create content in one app and pull it into another to create final product. I call it AppSmashing and so does Edudemic, Meghan Zigmond at ZigZagging through education & technology. and edtechteacher.
Here's the idea. I start with one app, let's say Paper by creating original images and export those images to the photo gallery. I then open Puppet to import my pics and add voice over to the images. After I'm done creating I share it to social networks for people to learn from. So, I can take multiple apps and smash their products together to make a single product that can be shared.
AppSmashing involves critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, and the ability to merge multiple forms of data in new ways.
Get these apps on the AppStore
