Cool Tech Tool: ChatterPix Kids

ChatterPix Kids

Let’s ChatterPix!


Chatterpix Kids can make anything talk -- pets, friends, doodles, and more. Simply take any photo, draw a line to make a mouth, and record your voice. Then share your Pix with friends and family as silly greetings, playful messages, creative cards, or even fancy book reports. (from ChatterPix.com)


Check out the collections of ideas & freebies below:

Athens City Schools Elementary Tech Integration

#ACSPowerUP

Great things are happening in Athens City Elementary Schools!


This week a teacher shared, "We started out just searching for and using different apps, but now we are ready to find ways that our iPads can take learning to a new level." ACS teachers are reflecting and constantly seeking ways to enhance student learning. It's exciting to be a part of a team of educators who are constantly trying to better themselves in order to benefit students!

EduCREATING!

It's great to see what our students can do almost instantly with an app like Educreations. Third graders were given basic instructions about what the tools in Educreations do and then set free to create!


Check out what they did on their first try:
