Ms. Dhaliwal’s class created Earth Day messages in the style of Todd Parr. We used more than one app (PicCollage and ProCreate) to create our work. This is called App Smashing. This favourite author even ‘favourited’ our tweet when we shared our work. Yahoo! Check out the student blogs for Division 5 at http://georgesvanierlibrary.edublogs.org

Plasticine App Smash

Division 9 AppSmashed ColorEffects and PicCollage to manipulate photos of their plasticine tsunami creations. We wanted to demonstrate the power and devastation of a Tsunami. Check out their blogs: http://georgesvanierlibrary.edublogs.org

Many students in Kindergarten to Grade 2 used chalkboards and Chalkboard App to respond to Bill Tomson’s picture book, Chalk. Students imagined what they would draw if their creations could come to life. Check out their great video:
