Cool Tools for the 21st Century Classroom

Guest Post: Let’s Talk About Captions!


The Perfect Captions app is a great way to incorporate technology in your classroom in an engaging way!  This free apps allows students to extend their thinking on a variety of topics.

I love using this app with primary source documents, but it’s also perfect for reinforcing literacy skills. Students can add captions to demonstrate their understanding of what a fiction character or historical figure might be thinking.   Have students create captions to record their predictions, to jot questions that they have, or write dialogue for the main character.

They can use a picture found on the Internet, saved on a student’s iPad or taken with their iPad camera. I have students email me their work, I print it out, and it goes straight on my bulletin board!

Customize the size, shape and color of the talk bubbles and text!
