How I Use It
I have found several applications for Photo Grid. First, I shave used it with vocabulary building. Students can gather pictures to help illustrate a words meaning. I find this also has application for struggling students. I offer photogrid as a selection on choice boards if I feel a student could legitimately complete an assignment in this fashion. Students have the chance to respond in pictures if they cannot express themselves through words.
My Take
This app is a great tool for certain jobs, but I don't feel that it is a heavy-use tool for my classroom. As with any tool, it's effectiveness is dependent on the abilities and creativity of the user. That said, I am happy to have this in my toolbox. If I want to change up my or my students' presentation style, I can do that without much difficulty.
