Popplet is an excellent way for students to create graphic organizers to organize and share what they have learned!
It is easy to use, allows the user to incorporate images and text, and can be exported to photos to be shared via a website. Popplet is a simple and innovative way to organize a student’s thinking by mapping their thoughts in a text, drawing, or image features.
How students used it? Teacher says:
"Students used Popplet in many curriculum areas. In a language arts lesson, students created Popplets to analyze characters in a book, incorporating images that illustrated the characteristics that they were describing. They loved all of the options in the app, such as the ability to change font size and to group "popples" together by color-coding them. During a science unit second graders used Popplet to demonstrate what they learned about composting by adding pictures of things that should and should not go into a compost. With both age groups, it took very little instruction to get the kids using the app. In large groups, it's a great way to introduce a topic to visually display what students already know, as well as for pre-writing and brainstorming sessions. I've even taught from a popplet I created in staff development sessions rather than presenting the information in a linear fashion as is so often done. This app has become one of my favorite go-to apps for students to use to share information in a visually appealing creative way!"
