This was one of the first posts to my Ning. My students and I still use Kerpoof, just not as much as we used to.
One of my favorite Web 2.0 tools has become Kerpoof. Kerpoof (www.kerpoof.com) is a web site that is owned by the Walt Disney Company. Teachers can create FREE classroom accounts. Once logged in, students can…
-Make artwork (even if you aren’t good at drawing!)
-Make an animated movie (really! it’s easy!)
-Earn Koins which you can trade for fun things in the Kerpoof Store
-Make a printed card, t-shirt, or mug
-Tell a story
-Make a drawing
-Vote on the movies, stories, and drawings that other people have made
Everything is very easy to navigate and control. My students enjoy it so much, they now log in at home and create additional projects during their free time.
