6th Grade Life Logos: Morphi Keychains and Keynote Audio Posters

Over the past few weeks, our 6th grade students used the Morphi app and our Apple Pencils on our iPads to design “Life Logos.” Each Life Logo represented something important to the student. Students used these online tutorials to guide them through the process of creating their designs. The Apple Pencils really helped students to easily draw details for their designs.

The logos were printed on our Dremel 3D printers. After the first 1.0 version of their designs were printed, students had an option make revisions and print a 2.0 and 3.0 version of their keychain. They really had to think deep to figure out ways to address flaws and improve their designs.

Once the keychains were printed, the students created an audio poster using the Keynote app on our iPads. They added titles, a photo of their keychain (with the background removed using the instant alpha effect), and then an audio recording where they explained their logo and reflected on their design process. Their audio posters were saved to their camera roll as a video file and then uploaded to a Padlet wall. Students had the opportunity to listen to their classmates’ recordings and leave comments for them.

(Link to video tutorials for how to create the Keynote Audio Posters.)

This was the first time I have used Keynote to create “audio posters” and was very pleased with how easily the students followed the process.
