Pic Collage is a free app where students can create a virtual corkboard. This works as a great tool to present vocabulary. Students can import images from their camera roll, or the site has an imbedded internet search for images which is incredibly helpful.
And you can add fun “stickers” for decoration. You can then add text. To the right is a picture posted by Jiménez es con Jota for school supplies. I created the below image for Fruit vocabulary in less than 8 minutes.
I saw this image circulating around Pinterest from Tiempo De Español and it got me thinking.What a fantastic way to practice labeling vocabulary! I have my students create their own monster for body parts, but how easy would it be for students to label their own picture for any unit? For the body part unit, they could find a picture of their favorite cartoon character and in less than 5 minutes have a visually stimulating vocabulary list. You can edit photos by adding text, circling, highlighting and more with the free iPad app Skitch. This will only markup images. You need a premium account to be able to markup PDFs.
