“I am not a teacher, but an awakener.” Robert Frost
‘App Smashing’ (I have also heard it called App Synergy) was invented by Gregory Kulowiec. App Smashing is when students create content using a variety of apps for example smashing Tellagami and iMovie to make a video. Intro to App-Smashing from misterkling on Vimeo does a great job of explaining what App Smashing is more in-depth.
Why should you be App Smashing? That is easy, because why limit yourself or your students to just one app! App smashing allows more creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and communication of content mastery; all 21st century skills we want our students using along with integrating technology seamlessly. Take the concept a step further and have the students explain how they created their app smash.
