"Somebody has recently asked me for a review of an app that can allow students to easily create posters on iPad. Pic Collage is the best option I recommend. With Pic collage you can take a bunch of picture and make one picture of it.
Using Pic Collage you can combine your photos in different ways . Scatter photos onto the background of your choosing or create a grid of your photos.

If a picture speaks a thousand words, you can tell a whole story in a single frame with this app."

"In a previous post from December http://ow.ly/mr5pa , I wrote about how I was (sadly) switching from Edmodo http://edmodo.com/ (my long-time LMS love) to Schoology. http://schoology.com/ ; Of the 25 schools I support, 33 classes of students are using a Learning Management System. Since my December revelation, 26 have switched to Schoology and the remainder stayed with Edmodo.

Below is a quick overview of what we've learned when it comes to Edmodo vs. Schoology."
