Zappli: Make your own Google Image activity

Autres : Zappli

If you haven’t checked out one of our two introduction videos to the Zappli application, it might be helpful to check one of those out first.

When I first started teaching, I would come up with lots of fun little ideas to engage my students and help them retain information. Very often I scoured images on google of a particular theme or topic, put them in microsoft word, tried to size them properly, printed them (on a crummy black and white printer), cut them out, put them in a cup that I hid in my cubby and eventually lost all of them as other teachers asked to borrow the images.

Now with Zappli, that same spirit can be duplicated in a digital format! Much more quickly and easily, too…

If you don’t have time to watch the video, here are the steps I took:

  1. Create a new folder on my Desktop with an appropriate name.
  2. Do a google image search of a topic. Here, I put in “traffic signs single” in order to find images of individual traffic signs.
  3. From the search page, I dragged and dropped the thumbnail images generated by Google into my new folder.
  4. Open Zappli and direct it to the appropriate folder.
  5. Activity born!
