Digilit-Collages

Margaret Simon has started a new meme titled Digilit Sunday. You can find it, and all who are linking up at Reflections On The Teche, Margaret's Blog. Thanks Margaret!

       If you read my posts at all, you know that I enjoy finding ways to do collages, especially when I'm sharing books. I like to share the book covers, too. I usually use Picasa, and have looked for other creative ways to make them. I want to share Kizoa today, an app that has quite a few ideas for creating, including adding music, different ways to make images stand out, ways to add text, etc. On this site one can also create slideshows and videos.  I can see that one could share a short piece of text, like a description, brief memoir, or poem with one image or more. Today I just grouped a few animal pictures, and added jungle sounds so you can see how it would work.

Don't forget to click on the speaker to start the sounds!

  2. Well, that is cool! I'm adding to my list of things to play with. I think the kids would love it. I think I'll show it to my kids tomorrow to see if anyone wants to explore and add it to their research website. Thanks for sharing. I'm really enjoying DigiLit Sundays. :)

  4. Excellent find, Linda! I'm saving this to experiment with this week (it's our state testing week) so that my kids can give it a go.
