Scrap It

“Scrap It” is an iOS app that you can get for any iDevice, and even in HD for the iPad.  I must admit that I had not thought about its educational value until one of my students decided to create a recent project that she did on Rosa Parks using this app on her mother’s iPad.  If you are looking for something that is a bit different than Powerpoint, Keynote, or Prezi, then “Scrap It” might be a good value for you at 99 cents.  Using the tools provided, the user can create a virtual scrapbook that can then be e-mailed, shared, or saved to the camera roll.  Since each page is saved as a .jpg, the images could even then me imported into some kind of slide presentation, such as the aforementioned Powerpoint, Keynote, or Prezi.  Or, you can use an iPad VGA adapter to hook it directly to your projector.

Below are some examples from my student’s presentation.
