How I Use It
Photo Grid is a relatively simple tool that offers some neat options for students to manipulate photos like adding borders, making collages, adding stickers, and applying basic photo effects. Students could use this app to create great looking collages that could be used in a class presentation or project. The finished photos can be sent via email and a number of other social media outlets. Photo Grid could be used to spruce up visual representations of concepts and allows you to add your own text for customized captions.
Since my school employs 1:1 Chromebooks, my students can only access this app if they bring their own iOS or Android device. Considering that there are many other free apps out there that do the same thing, I would not recommend this app for schools using Chromebooks and Google Apps for Education. The ads that appear at the top are also obtrusive and distract from the experience. If your school uses iPads, Photo Grid could be a great teacher tool for building vocabulary or creating eye catching visual components to your lessons.
