“App Friday”

Welcome to the first post about Apps that can help our teaching and students learning!

We are kicking off with a fantastic app which creates brilliant collages in seconds. It is called “Pic Collage” and is free.

PicCollage lets you instantly arrange your photos into frames – or get creative with freeform collages, cutouts, filters, borders, stickers, and text.  Your friends will be amazed with what you can create.  It’s like photoshop with your fingers!

This weeks app is called “iMotionHD“. iMotion HD is an intuitive and powerful time-lapse and stop-motion app.

Time-lapse is a cinematography technique which accelerates movement. It can be used to photograph cloudscapes, plants growing, crowds…

Stop motion is an animation technique which makes a physically manipulated object look like it’s moving on its own.
