This week’s educational web tool is Kerpoof – http://www.kerpoof.com/
Kerpoof Studio is owned and run by The Walt Disney Company. It has many great features and aspects that are for Pre-K – 12 students and classrooms. This site has some really fun activities:
- Make Animated Movies
- Make Artwork
- Make Printed Cards
- Tell a Story
- Make a Drawing
- Spelling Games
- Plus much more…
Another area that is truly beneficial for educators is their resource page – Kerpoof Teacher Resources. It has lesson plans and ideas to implement this valuable web tool in your classroom. Once you have signed up for your FREE account, you will then be able to add student accounts. Then, your students can create and save their work in a sort of digital portfolio. Once they have their accounts, they can also collaborate with other students in their class or across the globe. They can give feedback and get feedback on their digital creations. With CCSS (Common Core State Standards) coming, this web tool could become an essential part of those standards.
Get your class started on here and watch the students get excited to create digital stories and movies. Have them re-tell a book or story you just read or have them design and develop a how-to video on a math concept. The possibilities are endless!
