It is always fun and engaging to use iPads to have students create videos of their work, but it is even more fun when a project can be inspired by a holiday like Christmas. Then share projects with students' parents via email or posted on a teacher's blog/website. Parents love to see and hear their children. This project is a great way to capture a moment in time.
For this project, see examples below, students typed out the Christmas poem they created in Google Docs. Then they copied the text of their poem and pasted the text in Phoetic, a word cloud creating app, to generate a word cloud. Lastly students created an Adobe Voice of their poetry using images through Adobe Voice and their Phoetic word cloud.
