This week our instructor showed us a bunch of different, useful and cool sites. He showed us how we could use Evernote, Slideshare, Livebinders, Animoto, BlipFM, and Shape Collage, just to name a few-all free resources available on the web and could easily be incorporated into lessons and assignments or simply for personal use.
I thought Shape Collage looked pretty cool, so I downloaded it. It saves to your computer and allows you to customize a variety of collages using your own photos. You can specify how many photos you want in the collage, how large you want the photos, and what shape you would like the collage to be in. When you are happy with the collage you have created you simply save it to your computer (or wherever you like to save your work!). I think Shape Collage grabbed my attention because I have a lot of photos that I can play with and I thought it could be an excellent touch to projects or assignments to give students (or yet another great way to procrastinate from doing actual homework...)
Here is a quick collage I created (sticking with the New Zealand theme!)
