How I Use It
I have used this app with grades 2 through 5 and every student was able to participate in the learning with no issue at all. Second graders used it to illustrate the weather conditions in different seasons since they are able to draw in the popples. Other grade levels have used it to show what they learned during research and to organize events in a piece of writing they are working on.
I find this to be one of the most useful free apps I have found. We have not upgraded ours to the paid version. Popplet Lite (the free version) allows you to type, draw, and import pictures into the popples. It also allows you to save your popple as a jpeg straight into the Camera Roll on iPad. That means students can easily turn in popplets they created using Edmodo. Popplet has been extremely valuable to all of the classrooms I have introduced it to at my school.
