Tips for Using:

First upload your background image. These images can be from the camera, the internet (be sure they're copyright friendly!) or students can create their own background image using PicCollage, Popplet Lite, Comic Touch Lite, Haiku Deck or any other app that saves the final product to the Camera Roll.

Next add your pins. Pins can link to URLs or simply to text. Using the iPad app, pins can link to student created videos. These videos can easily be created in apps like 30Hands, iMovie, the camera, Doceri, Tellagami or any other app that saves a movie to the camera roll.

The final product can be linked via URL or embedded onto a blog or webpage.
