- Stick Around:
Students turn what they know into a puzzle with the Stick Around (Links to an external site.) app. Puzzles are made in three steps:
- Use drawing tools and/or import photos to make a background.
- Add stickers with text, images, and or drawings.
- Indicate where stickers belong by making an answer key.
Puzzles are played by dragging the stickers from the tray on the right side of the screen onto the correct spot on the background. Types of puzzles that can be made include sorting, categorizing, labeling, and matching. Puzzles can be played on the same iPad, and they can also be shared to other iPads that have Stick Around installed. Since the end product is a game, students keep their audience in mind as they craft and test their puzzles.
Students can use Stick Around to make puzzles where players tag parts of the body, place items where they belong on a chart, label items in a photo, associate words and definitions, complete a graphic organizer, put words in alphabetical order, and so much more.
This app is a special one to me because I co-created it. After working with iPad apps for a few years, teachers kept asking for an app where they could insert their own content to make matching activities. I partnered with MorrisCooke, the app design studio responsible for the very popular Explain Everything (Links to an external site.) app, to make my app idea a reality. In fact, if you are familiar with Explain Everything’s tools and menus, you’ll feel right at home in Stick Around (Links to an external site.).
Yes, teachers can make Stick Around puzzles. But we really hope more puzzles are made by students than teachers. Like other digital learning artifacts, creating a puzzle requires knowledge of the topic. Puzzles can have introductory web links and audio. Each sticker can also have weblinks, comments, and audio. In this way, a puzzle really is a way to explain something, which certainly helps the puzzle maker’s understanding of the topic.
