Kerpoof Studio - Multimedia Experience!

Kerpoof is a Web 2.0 site that I have used and shared with teachers for several months.  Everything is free and elementary and middle school students have enjoyed the creativity it affords. Students and teachers have given it a huge thumbs up!  
Students can create multimedia drawings, stories, movies, cards, doodles, and more.  The site links to state standards and activities are interactive.  Kerpoof can be used with an Interactive White Board and of course, individually.  It is also a good site to share with parents so families can create at home.  The site has won numerous awards, supports multiple languages, and encourages creativity, reading and writing.  What more can a teacher ask for? 
                  Keeping it simple                   
The teacher link, Kerpoof Scholastics is: It will give you a clear overview of the site's options.
FAQ's for Teachers - Kerpoof is free to teachers and educational institutions. 
  • There is nothing to download.  Kerpoof runs using Flash Player 10.  Most schools have Flash Player as part of a desktop/notebook configuration and it is a free download from Adobe.  
  • Kerpoof runs on PC and MAC computers.  Technical support is available through a website.
Make sure your students know that they do not need a paid membership.  That option is available however, all your students can use Kerpoof at the same time and it is free.

If you are looking to spark creative writing and storytelling, give Kerpoof a look.  I think you will be impressed.  Leave a comment and let me know what your students think of the site.
