I saw Tricia Fuglestad use this ap for a project and I knew I had just the use for it!
It is called wordfoto.
Here's how it works.
Download it for $1.99 to your iPhone or iPad.
Write 10 words.
Choose a picture to upload.
Overlay words of picture and (drum roll please)
You get this amazing blend of image with text.
The Green Team and I brainstormed words to incorporate in their murals. We created 5'X4' canvas murals on different themes about green practices. This is just one of our large murals.
Next step. . . we are going to project this picture on top of the actual mural and start to outline the words with multicolored sharpies. We probably most likely won't get to half of the words but I still think it will work. My life is a huge experiment lately, so why should this project be any different?
I'm sure you can think of a million uses for this ap in your classroom. We don't have iPads but I can dream and use my own.
Have you found any great aps I should know about?
