Apps in Action: Pic Collage

(Last Updated On: April 20, 2017)

Pic Collage is a super tool for creating digital posters of any content that you, the teacher, deems worthy of such work.  You have the option of creating an account or not. I did my creations without the account and all seemed to work just fine.  I was able to add images from the camera, the camera roll, or the web.  When choosing the web, a simple Google image search appears which once spelling of search terms in tackled was simple enough for even our kinder kids.  Pictures then are able to be moved, turned, resized and placed on your page.  The background can be changed, text can be added, stickers can be used to decorate your creation.



Finally, collages can be shared in many ways ` probably the most useful are by saving to the camera roll or by sending by email.

Ease of Use:  Super Simple for even the littlest of students
SAMR Ranking:  Depending on the curricular connection, I think at a basic level this is augmentation because access to pictures is better using PicCollage’s search feature, which makes this an improvement over making a paper and glue type picture collage.  I think our littlest students could be highly creative in making visual content for a variety of purposes. I think we can move up the SAMR ladder with this tool if we save the picture to the camera roll and then bring it into a second tool, like Educreations,  and have students share more content auditorily.  Post final projects out for greater audience, sharing and feedback and you may continue up the ladder.  Check out links below for curricular connections.  
Cost:  free

Review of app: appo learning 

Importing:  I was able to add images from the camera, the camera roll, or the web.  When choosing the web, a simple Google image search appears which once spelling of search terms in tackled was simple enough for even our kinder kids.

Exporting: I had many export choices, Post to Pic Collage, which would involve creating a Pic Collage login, Facebook, Twitter, Tumbl, as well as Save to Photo Library and Send by Email.  These last two would be my choice.
