Bonus tip of the day! .......................... Create media collages with VidStitch
Looking for more ideas for students to create projects with media? Here's a really cool FREE app that's available on both iOS and Android devices that I think you'll really like.
VidStitch is a media stitching app that allows you to combine a variety of media into a single collage image or video. There are a lot of apps out there that do this for photos, but the cool thing about VidStitch is that it also allows you to include video in your collage as well. The free version allows one video - the PRO version ($0.99) allows you to include multiple videos.
Once you've completed your project, the app will save your image or video collage into your PHOTOS area of your device. If you choose, you can then upload that into Discovery to use however you like. Students can also upload saved collages onto a Board Builder Board as part of a larger project.
For example, you might have the student
* download an image (or images, or even video) of a map, process, photograph, etc. and add those to your collage
* use the device to record a video of themselves explaining that image
* save the project as a video and upload it back onto a Board in Discovery and turn it in to you as an assignment
