Greg Kuloweic of EdTech Teacher (or Lisa Johnson's 'app synergy') defined the process when using the iPad or other technological mobile devices.
App smashing is the process of using more than one app to create a product or complete an activity without being limited using one app. You begin with one, transfer to the next for enhancement, and continue until the final product is complete.
The key is to be creative and understand that not a single app out there can do it all. You will have to use:
- Your camera roll (its the epicenter)
- Several apps of choice
- Second set of apps to "smash" or combine previous (step 2) media together
- The "share" button to finalize or publish in some way
Consider the 'workflow,' or where will the product end and how it will get there.
Bottom line: don't feel constrained to use only one app for student creation. Let them explore and use a variety of apps if it means an awesome product!
