Introductory Avatar Lesson on the Ipad


This will be my first time using a full classroom set of ipads and for most of my students, it will be their first time on the ipad as well. As an introductory activity, I'm considering having them create their own personal avatar image to be saved in the photo album on their assigned ipad. There are several apps which will be installed for them to do this including the following, Adobe Ideas,adobe_ideas_icon.jpg

After creating their avatar, they can share them with the class and then import them to our selected notetaking app,

PS. Just found an online drawing app on DeviantArt that uses HTML5 - it's called Muro. Sweet!
