Puppet Pals

Several students worked with me to create little movies using Puppet Pals HD Director’s Pass software. It is one of my all-time favorite iPad apps. In video 1 a student and I voiced super hero characters about to jump into the sky; the characters were made completely of pipe cleaners (the student is a master of the pipe cleaner medium). In other videos, the characters are cut-out pieces of paper with scribbles of vegetables on them (the students did the scribbling). In video 5, I voiced a Victorian British curator who lives in the Underground; he has artists describe their work.

6 Word Stories

As a spin on the Six-Word Memoir, we created Six-Word Stories. Students write six words that describe a photograph. The words can be a proper sentence or not; they can be funny, academic, thoughtful, etc. We used the Skitch app on the iPad to write the sentence. Here are two samples:
