Welcome to Springappalooza, the blog series with some simple tasks and challenges to bolster your app skills. If you complete all challenges by Friday, May 3rd, you’ll be awarded a special Springappalooza 2019 badge and sticker to help you strut your stuff.
Your Week 1 challenge is to make a GIF. It’s Spring Break so get creative! Head outside and do an awesome cartwheel. Show proper grilling technique. Or make an artsy GIF of a kite flying. The world is your oyster.
There’s an app called ImgPlay in Self Service which allows you to use your camera or media on your iPad to make a little looping video. Here’s a quick overview (made with Clips) of how to use the app.
Download ImgPlay from Self Service and make a GIF from an existing video (or make a new video!). It doesn’t have to be related to school, just something to try it out. When you’re finished, leave a comment with an idea for using this in class. What will it make easier? How could students use GIFs in their work?
If you’re stuck, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back in touch.
