All About Me - iPad - Balloon Stickies

All About Me - Technology Integration - A Creative iPad Writing Activity

Students create an "All About Me" profile using an iPad app.

The app used here is the "Balloon Stickies Plus" free version. Students use the iPad's camera to take a picture of themselves or each other.

Students can add speech bubbles (balloon stickies) and text to write about themselves.

Students will add 4 or more speech bubbles and add information about things they like, things they do, their pets, their friends, and other interesting facts. Students save, share, and / or print.

Grade 1 +

All About Me - iPad Collage - Finished Example

Students can save their finished assignment to the camera roll and print.

Note: The saved images are a bit small measuring 407px X 640px (actual size shown). These might be good candidates for framing by pasting them onto colored sheets.
