1. piZap

piZap is a photo editor, collage maker, and design tool that is free to use for the basic version (but still includes great tools!) An app is also available for iOS and Android. Use piZap to create your own emoji, cut out and combine subjects from multiple photos, and create your own memes, as well as more traditional photo editing options such as brightness, contrast, crop, rotate, etc... Tons of frames and stickers are included. Have fun!

2. Action Movie FX

ACTION MOVIE FX lets you add Hollywood effects to iPhone and iPad movies that YOU shoot! It's incredibly fun for "kids" of all ages. Instructionally, how about using this app to create a video writing prompt? Each video is extremely short and the app is very easy to use. Check out my movie "Rockslide" or the one below that I made today at the Book Fair!

3. OurBoox

OurBoox provides a simple platform for uploading and sharing digital picture books of any kind, in any language, for free. With Ourboox, digital e-books are easy to self-publish and easy to share. The books can incorporate video, sound and many other features. Authors can keep track of the number of readers and can read their comments. Here is a book I created with Nolan's science notes! An OurBoox account can be created using a fake email address and without using a last name. To use OurBoox with students, however, you will still need to obtain parental permission.
