"AppSmashing-ly" Beautiful Collages
Using appsmashing to create great images!
Wait wait...What even is "Appsmashing"?
All appsmashing is is using multiple phone, tablet, or computer applications to achieve some goal! For example, if you post a video to Facebook, you will use both your camera app and the Facebook app—that's appsmashing!
What apps will we need?
-A photo collage app (plenty of free apps: I like picstitch or frametastic)
Let's make it happen!
2. Tell them to download picstitch or frametastic, with a wifi connection this should only take between 60 and 90 seconds.
3. Instruct them to use the internet and/or the camera to capture images of a certain type of organism (this can be decided by you, type of plant, mammals only, or animals you would find in Africa, like the image above)
4. Instruct them on how to use picstitch to put these images together into a collage.
