Does Pic Collage provide opportunities for you to communicate and/or collaborate?

Pic Collage does facilitate some collaboration. Apart from just sharing your collage to facebook or twitter, you  can also create a Pic Collage account. You can post your collages there and ‘follow’ other users. There is a comment feature called ‘respond’ - instead of commenting with text, you ‘respond’ by adding text and/or images etc to the collage you want to respond to! Now that’s novel. Click here to learn more about how to ‘respond’. You could use this feature to gather feedback from your friends or project group on your collage or to work together to build on a basic collage.


For Educators

Assessments, reflections, and projects do not always have to be submitted in the written form, and presentations do not always have to be created in PowerPoint! In some situations, something like Pic Collage could provide your students way more freedom to express their understanding of the topic in hand.
