1. Board Games with PicCollage
We took a look at the blog, Mrs. Samuelson's Swamp Frogs and learned how to make board games using PicCollage. http://swampfrogfirstgraders.blogspot.com/
Pick a background color.
Search for paper color using the websearch in the app. (+ button)
Once you find the color wanted add it to PicCollage and begin to clip it to the shape wanted for the game board creation.
After the color paper image is clipped, create a path for the board.
Words and stickers can be added to make the board interesting.
Save the game board image to the camera library.
Set as the background.
The video on the blog post was helpful when saving board game to the camera, setting as a background and then creating moveable board pieces.
Homework for Deb: Deb is going to make a PicCollage board game for the first 20 days of school.
We got on Twitter and followed some new techy peeps.
We shared Podcasts to listen to.
