This week's hAPPy Friday app is the simple presentation app Shadow Puppet EDU. VVE students have used Shadow Puppet for a variety of tasks including recording art reflections and sharing about their family culture. In Kindergarten last week, families and students together filled out a little survey about how their family came to Texas and what they loved most about Texas. We then used Shadow Puppet EDU to display student drawings of their favorite thing about Texas and recorded them telling their stories. Each recording was then given a hyperlink and a QR code. The QR codes were pasted in the back of students' "All About Me" books as well as on a master map indicating the variety of cultures represented by VVE students. At our Open House, parents could view the books and scan the QR codes to view the videos.
For more information on how to use Shadow Puppet Edu, check out the App Integration Sheet and see the video example below.
