Bringing pictures and drawings to life empowers kids.
I love using this app along with a self-portrait assignment. When kids add their own voices to self-portraits it really brings the images to life. This app works well with a wide variety of kids from children on the spectrum to the precocious overachiever. My only criticism is that when multiple kids are using a single iPad, account it can be hard to deal with the output in an organized way. Also the app is so focused that it can seem limited to kids who are used to more robust tools.
How I Use It
My favorite classroom apps empower kids to tell their own stories. Chatterpix is a one trick pony, but it's a good trick. The app allows kids to add voices to pictures. It can be used to tell stories, to add explanations or to bring a scene to life.
