3 App Smash Video Projects to Challenge Your Students | Edudemic

3 App Smash Video Projects to Challenge Your Students | Edudemic | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
"When app-smashing on iPad, students and teachers use multiple apps to create individual pieces of content that are then merged or smashed together into one culminating product. Applying this concept dramatically increases creative potential, and the rate at which apps are developing allows for new, unique, and dynamic creations to consistently challenge what seemed possible only a few months or weeks ago. The final product involved in app-smashing often lends itself to video, so to kick off the school year, here are a few app-smashing video projects."

No, There Isn't an App For That - Another Way | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
"About a year ago I first heard Greg Kulowiec of EdTechTeacher talk about App Smashing. App Smashing is the process of using multiple apps together to create a single product. The power of the iPad isn’t about one or two innovative apps. It’s about finding creative ways to get apps to work together (smashing them together to get something new). Drawing Pad does some cool stuff. So does Chrome. So does Explain Everything. So does iMovie. So does Book Creator. But all of them have their own limitations. Each of them lack some really creative features. But at the same time, each of them does some amazing things the others don’t. The power of the iPad is in getting those apps to work together to do some truly creative stuff."

Using the story prompts, the students worked together in groups of 2-3, to imagine and write their own creepy and silly story endings.
