App Smashing

2.9 A – Identify the basic needs of plants and animals
Second grade teacher Lisa Holder at Foster Village is using iPads in her classroom to enhance how students show their learning.  By app smashing, using two or more apps to create a project or complete a task, students use Doodle Buddy to draw a picture of a plant and what it needs to live.  They then put that picture into ChatterPix and recorded the basic needs of plants.  ChatterPix makes the picture ‘speak’ what has been recorded.  The level of engagement in Lisa’s classroom was amazing as were the collaborative conversations between students as they helped one another complete their projects.
