Instructional Ideas:

  1. After reading a text, teachers can have students use this app to represent a specific fact or topic discussed in the text. Once completed, teachers can have students post their collage to a class website along with an explanation that discusses the connection(s) between the text and collage.
  2. As an icebreaking activity at the beginning of the year, teachers can have students create a collage that represents themselves using this app. Next, in small groups, students can show their classmates the collage and discuss it with them. After students have had the chance to share, the teacher can group students with other classmates and repeat the process.
  3. As part of a research assignment, teachers can require students to create a visual aid about the subject of their research using this app. Students can embed the visual aid into their research paper and/or use it as part of a presentation.
  4. When teaching about key events, significant people, or other historical happenings, teachers can have students create a collage using this app that represents their learning. Students can then post their collage along with commentary about the topic to a class website. Classmates can then view the collage, read the commentary, and respond to it by adding their thoughts regarding the topic, collage, or commentary.
