How I Use It
Students used original ideas and created graphic representations of historical events. Loved that you can upload and change photographs easily. Somewhat limited to what you can do after you insert and change images. Great app for beginners who have little prior access to graphic design media.
My Take
I love the ease of use and access. It's free and easy to use and get students using in the classroom. I love that my students have the option to create digital media without having to pay hundreds of dollars getting graphic design tools that professionals use when they are only starting to explore. Students seem to take to the app in a snap and want to use it again (which is a huge plus)
