Cartoon Camera Pro app is a really cool app that creates sketch like images from any image stored in your camera roll or from images taken with your iPad camera. Very simple to use: you upload an image, and once uploaded you can then resize, rescale, or crop. You then can select if you want your image to appear in black and white, coloured, or distorted and also add filters.
Your image will appear like a sketched cartoon. I created this cartoon image with no fuss at all.
Images can be shared via social network tools or saved to your camera roll.
Students and Teachers could use the images when creating
Or absolutely anything
Whilst this app is not entirely “educational” it does allow the creative, and not so creative, to produce a document in a fun way. I haven’t yet used this app in my classroom, but I am thinking it might be quite hilarious for students to take a photo of themselves, turn that into a comic sketch and then use that image to create a poster that describes them. Definitely think that my year 8s will enjoy that activity and also sharing their creation, And while it might seem a bit frivolous students will still be talking, reading, listening and writing in the target language. Who said teaching and learning a language can’t be fun!
