Creating a Visual Dictionary on the iPad Pic Collage (free), is one of my favorite apps to use on my iPad. It creates great looking Scrapbook pages of multiple images in no time. Today, as I was planning with our first grade Hebrew teacher, how to upgrade a traditionally taught vocabulary project (creating a dictionary of their weekly vocabulary words in Hebrew), we saw the opportunity to use PicCollage with students in the classroom. (My apologies in advance for the example below is in Spanish and not in Hebrew) Reminder: The idea of a visual dictionary should/is not be confined to the World Language classroom. Think math terms, science vocabulary, library term glossary, Language Arts vocabulary lists, etc.
