    Smilebox :)

    November 15th, 2010

    This weekend I discovered Smilebox!  While our children danced the night away at their matric dance, we parents (excitedly? nervously?) sat in front of our computers checking Facebook for regular uploads of photos.  In between Facebook updates (Teenagers don’t use Twitter!) I found a wonderful online photograph album, complete with turning pages and your choice of background music.  You can also create scrapbooks, recipe books, calendars, slideshows etc.  Have a look at this one I made at 2am… it was very quick and easy.

    With plenty of year-end events coming up at school, why not put all your school photos into Smilebox and create a super-professional presentation for parents and children!


    Sumo Paint… for kids of all ages

    November 14th, 2010

    If you are a Foundation Phase teacher, you have probably used Microsoft Paint as the starting point for literacy work in the classroom.  My ten-year-old son introduced me to this far superior, web-based painting tool: SumoPaint 

    The above picture was made entirely using SumoPaint.  There are many wonderful effects that enable children to create very professional-looking artwork.  Click on the picture below to visit a gallery of images.  Have fun using this tool.  Why not create a slideshow of pictures created by your whole class!
