How I Use It
I use the iPads and allow the students to create Pow-Toons to make sure the students are understanding the information that the teacher is going over in class. Pow-Toons allow the students to create easy animations to help get out the information they want their pupils to know. The students are very engaged and usually have lots of smiles while using this application. They enjoy creating cartoons with technology. The students need to be monitored to make sure they are focusing on content instead of the animations. Time is on task is important to monitor while using the app.
My Take
Students enjoy using this application because it allows them to explore and create. The app lets students led the educational process in a fun and exciting way. The app is easy to use and makes creating animations fun. The free version is almost like a trial version. However, the paid app it more beneficial in the classroom as it opens up more educational opportunities.
