Black History Hero Portraits with Keynote and Apple Pencil

For Black History Month, our middle schoolers worked on Hero Portraits. They selected a person to research, then used a photo in Keynote to guide them to trace their portrait with our Apple Pencils. Then they used the drawing tools in Keynote to color in the portrait. Finally added words and shapes to represent important concepts about that person’s life. Some students even turned the poster into an animated video!

Express Your Selfie!

Our middle school students have been using selfies to explore a variety of apps to creatively edit photos on their iPads. They took one selfie and edited it in multiple ways. Here is a Clips video showing some of their amazing photos.

We used a variety of FREE iPad apps including Prizma, Pixlr-o-matic, Snapseed, BeFunky, PIP Camera, PicsArt, RePix, Clip2Comic, and MySketch to add filters and effects to self-portraits.

Student have blogged and reflected on their work on their personal blogs on KidBlog. Here is a link to their blogs: . They would love to have comments!
