You are Your Words
For those of you who find it appealing to make pictures out of text, as in the iDevice apps TypeDrawing and WordFoto, there is a website that will also perform this function. You are Your Words, sponsored by American Heritage Dictionary, allows you to upload your photo and text, and meld the two together. There are some basic controls for changing the contrast and font types. Once you have created your masterpiece, you can share it on Facebook or Twitter. You can also download and save it. An idea for using this might be to have students upload their pics (with parental permission, of course), and choose one or more quotes that they find meaningful. This would make a great photo gallery in your classroom!
