Tikatok update

I have spoken with the technology teacher at my school and she is really excited to use this Web 2.0 tool next year. We were talking about possible ways that it could be used at our school. Some examples that we came up with were:

  • Students can use this to create a story about their summer. We would do this in a cross-curricular process including media, art, and technology (in that order). Here are the different elements each subject would create:
    • Media would be in charge of developing their story about their summer.
    • Art would be in charge of the illustrations that went along with the story.
    • Technology would be in charge of the actual creation of the book.
  • In Guidance, our guidance counselor could use this to create social stories.
  • In the classroom, students could use this to develop their writing skills.
  • Teachers could use this to create a memory book for the end of the year.

Tikatok has a Facebook Page, a blog, and a Twitter account that you can visit for more information and updates.


  1. This is awesome. I will take a look to see if it is appropriate for high school, but I'm definitely going to introduce this to our lower school technology person. She'd love to use this with her students. Thanks for the tip.

  2. You should check out StudentPublishing.com. They will actually PRODUCE your books for free and give you free access to the site. I think the site is better with paintable backgrounds and stickers the kids can use and every kid will get a free paperback (if you have at least 10 kids).
