If you are looking for a quick formative assessment or a way to let your artistic students shine, you have to visit Photovisi. Students simply select a template, drop the photos into place, and print to create their product.
Photo collages can be quick alternatives (or supplements) to an essay or quiz. Or for a student with a disability, they can be part of a larger assessment and used to highlight key skills a student has acquired over a period of time (e.g., photo of student learning to use communication device, photo of student working with peers).
Finally, you can use this tool to celebrate and to teach students about their accomplishments. Consider making a classroom yearbook or using it to help students create their own learning portfolios.
