Hi all. Although not really appropriate for high school level science, I thought I would pass this on to you. Kind of like glogster. Looks like fun for lower elementary grades.

from the website:

"Thanks for visiting Kerpoof and for visiting this page to learn more about Kerpoof. The information that follows won't tell you all about Kerpoof, but it will tell you what Kerpoof is all about.

What is Kerpoof? The answer to that is not so simple. Kerpoof is all about having fun, discovering things, and being creative. Here are just a few ways that you can use Kerpoof:

  • Make artwork (even if you aren't good at drawing!)
  • Make an animated movie (really! it's easy!)
  • Earn Koins which you can trade for fun things in the Kerpoof Store
  • Make a printed card, t-shirt, or mug
  • Tell a story
  • Make a drawing
  • Vote on the movies, stories, and drawings that other people have made

Check out our What's New and How-To pages to learn more about what you can do with Kerpoof. Kerpoof doesn't come with a manual or a directory or a map. If we've done our job right, then finding your way to the various nooks and crannies of Kerpoof will be half the fun.

In addition to being a lot of fun, Kerpoof has many educational uses. Visit our educator page (with ideas and lesson plans for how to use Kerpoof) or read our flyer for educators if you are in a hurry but want to learn more.

If you are a parent, you may also want to read our for parents page."

Enjoy, Doug

Thanks for the resource Doug. I'm going to take a look at using Kerpoof to enhance my English Language Development time. I have the Benchmark (or higher) English only students and we are working on writing. Many students have awesome ideas and organization, but need assistance in publishing and illustrating. Thanks!
