Thing #6

I enjoyed browsing around and finding fun mashups. The ones I got most out of were from I think that for business classes, with emphasis on hands-on training instead of just lecturing, the magazine cover and Badge maker would be most applicable. Students could use the magazine cover app to promote themselves in a fun assignment that would require them to talk about themselves and speak in front of the class to "sell" their magazine idea. (Not to go off on a tangent, but this would actually be good for language arts classes, too; its amazing how many kids use bad grammar from their everyday life in their writings and speeches. LA teachers definitely have their work cut out for them!) For the badge maker app, a journalism or business class could use that to create hall passes to use when on official assignments around school. A teacher in any subject, really, could use that app before taking class on a field trip, so that each student has a badge to wear on field trip.


  1. how about making a sample and posting it for us to see?

  2. several of our LA teachers have used the magazine covers and the image makers. I think making the badges would be a g reat idea too.

  3. I like the idea of making badges for a field trip. I will have to look at that. I do a field trip to Rice Univ. every year.
