Kerpoof is a free online resource specifically designed with students in mind. The Kerpoof studio allows students to create pictures, drawings, storybooks, movies, and to practice spelling. The site is very easy to use and students will get the knack of it fairly quickly. The site includes lesson plan ideas to help you develop ways that you can use it with your students. The activities are cross-referenced with current state standards as well as national technology standards.
Kerpoof is a great way to let students show their understanding in creative ways. They can save work on the site or pictures can be downloaded as JPEG files. Teachers can sign up for a free account where they can set up individual user accounts for their students. If you use it in your classroom, let us know by leaving a comment.
