“ There are lots of great learning opportunities when you use green screen effects in the classroom. I’ve written about some of those before, but almost all of them involved green screen movies. What about green screen photography? Is that possible on an iPad? It is, because there’s an app for that. Recently I was reminded of the ability to do green screen photography when I read a blog post by Dr. Wesley Fryer. He did a green screen photo booth at the Fall Festival of the school he works at in Oklahoma. Great idea. So how do you do it? It all starts with the Green Screen app by DoInk. The rest is easy! Here’s how it works.”

"PowToon is a free web app that lets you create presentations and animated videos. PowToon Edu is a free Chrome app extension that does the same on Chromebooks and Chrome browsers. There is also an education page. It's easy to use and there are some great resources on the site to help you learn how to use it. It can be used by teachers to make their presentations more engaging, and by students to create presentations for their projects."
