iPad Lesson: PhotoCards for Reflection

The 5th grade classes had an amazing in-school field trip to be CSI Forensic Scientists for a day.  Luckily an amazing parent was on-hand to take pictures to document the learning activities that took place like fingerprinting, blood-typing, using black lights, and marking crime scenes.

I suggested that a great way for the students to reflect on the learning they did for this day and to let someone outside of school know about their learning would be to create a photocard with the Bill Atkinson PhotoCard App on the iPads (FREE).

The app was so easy to use.  The students just tapped in the writing sections to add their text and to address their postcards.  Then we added the photos from the printed pictures by taking a picture with the camera on the iPads right from the app.  Students could even choose from a variety of beautiful stamps and themed stickers.

When they were finished, without registering for the app, students could save their photocards to the camera roll and then email them to their teacher.  If you do register for the app (which is also free) you can immediately email completed photocards and for a fee the service will even print and mail your creation for you!
