Great Tech Tools for Visual Literacy
Websites, iTune Apps, pricing, and an idea by TCI.
Site/App Platform $ Idea how to use with students
Government students could use Animoto to create a
30-second commercial for a fictional or real person
Web Free running for office. Have them focus on different
forms of propaganda when they put it together.
Have students create a 30 second video that uses
Web Free images and music to describe an important person
or event that your class is studying.
Prior to wrapping up a lesson, copy and paste the
chapter summary of your unit into a Tagxedo word
Web Free cloud. Invite the students to look at the prominent
words and debrief why each is important.
As students look for ways to prepare for an
assessment, have them create a Glogster poster that
Web Free has images, video, music, and text that would
answer your unit/lesson essential question.
Generate a class photostream for pictures your
students take as they study their community. Use
Web Free this opportunity to have students understand
copyright protections such as Creative Commons
www.flickr.com that allow free sharing with attribution.
Challenge students to gather pictures from around
the world that best illustrate key geographic terms.
iPad Free Example: Students find picture on Heritage of the
Mississippi River Delta for the term Delta.
For a research project, have your students take all
their RSS feeds and blend them into Flipboard so
iPad Free that they can read each sites info visually, and
without all the clicks of visiting each site.
