Play time!

These apps and sites are all free, though some contain paid content and/or pro upgrade options.

Students can use these tools to create and share as well.

Your teachers and students might already be using these apps/sites. Harness the power of popular media!


*Caveat - This list is not meant to be all-inclusive. There are many more tools available. If you want to share resources with me, I would be happy to add them to this list!

How can you share?

Social media is an obvious option. Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr are all great places to go. Know where your audience is.

Want to make it more accessible? Save images or videos and post them on your website. Share them with your teachers. Print out images to post around the library - or even in the halls.

Adobe Spark has options for Video, Post, and Pages. Each is a separate app, or they can all be found on the same site. Adobe Spark is compatible with iOS-, Chrome/Android-, and Windows-based devices.

Videos are constructed in a PowerPoint/Slides manner but allow for voiceover. Because it plays as a video, each slide is timed, lasting up to 10 seconds each. Choose images, layouts, music, and themes to customize your video.

Post allows you to select design, layout, palette, background, and text.

Spark now allows a branding option - create your own brand for your projects. You may also remove the Adobe Spark brand from projects.

SNAPCHAT (app)

Even if you don't want to use Snapchat to post and view stories, you can download the images and videos you create to your camera roll. I like saving images to Drive for easy access.
Use Canva to create social media posts (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Tumbler) as well as posters, infographics, and much more. Use graphics from Canva or upload your own images.
Use images from your camera roll or use your camera, then choose from a variety of categories to create unique filters and effects for your picture. You may also add text.
