PicCollage and PicMonkey: Let Your Creative Juices Flow, Have Fun

PicCollage is an app for phones and tablets, and as the name implies, is used to make collages.

Here is an image of 5th graders creating a collage with PicCollage:


PicMonkey is a free web-based tool for editing photos, and offers lots of free editing options to transform your photos. You can also create collages with this web tool.


Let me know if you use either of Pic Collage or PicMonkey, and if you use them in the classroom. Check them out if you're not already using them.


  1. Picmonkey looks good. I will have to try it!

  2. When I first read this post, I wondered how these apps might effectively be used within the classroom. Then I thought about the writing workshop and...light bulb! These apps could certainly make the planning phase of the writing process much more doable for any students, particularly those students who are more visual and kinesthetic learners. I can't wait to try these apps out in my own classroom!
