Eastbrook First Graders Are Techies 

Mrs. Sara Harley's first graders at Eastbrook Elementary School recently used their classroom iPads to construct informational readings concerning the life of Martin Luther King, Jr.  Choosing an event from his life, students wrote an information piece about that event in his life as though they were actually Dr. King.  Then, using the iPad app ChatterPix, students recorded themselves reading their work, uploaded a picture and created a video of an event in the life of Dr. King.

ChatterPix Kids from Duck Duck Moose is a simple and useful app.  It allows students to take a picture or use an image saved to the device's camera. With a swipe of their finger, students can draw a mouth on any image. There is one button to press to record, and the mouth then animates with the recording. Students can next add stickers and frames to the video.  Mrs. Harley felt the students truly enjoyed the process and the final projects were fun and well put together.

If you are interested in using ChatterPix with your class, simply contact your school's computer curriculum specialist for information on pushing the app to your school's iPads.
