Finally back on track with my Introduction to ChromeBooks for Education 101. This activity gave me an opportunity to ‘try out’ some awesome Google Apps for Education. For this module, I tried a Google app and completed a review of the app. Here is my review of the Loupe App.
The Loupe App is an online picture collage maker. The app allows you to upload images from a range of sources; Facebook, Google+, Dropbox, Drive, Flickr & your desktop. This app has a few unique features. You can use 100’s of images in your collage &, the most exciting feature for me, you can make a collage in a variety of shapes and in text. A bunch of awesomeness! There is a free version, with the ability to download a low resolution copy of your image with a Loupe Logo and a Pro version (paid) with the ability to download higher resolution copies and logo free copies. There are a range of built in shapes and the function to create your own shapes.
How could this be used in a classroom?
I could see this be used by learners to create visual images of evidence of learning; identity posters; & to add to online presentations.
Take it or leave it?
I would definitely provide this app to my learners. It provides learners with another opportunity to create an example of their learning. It is free and the images can be downloaded. I look forward to using this app with my learners.
Below is my ‘try’ – takes a few minutes tops to create.
On to the next phases of the course!
