Kerpoof!

Kerpoof is an Web 2.0 tool that allows users to create drawings,pictures,movies, and more. Kerpoof is owned and operated by Disney, making it very kid friendly. Here are a few fun ways you can use Kerpoof:

  • Make an animated movie
  • Earn Koins which you can trade for fun things in the Kerpoof Store
  • Make a printed card, t-shirt, or mug
  • Tell a story
  • Make a drawing
  • Vote on the movies, stories, and drawings that other people have made

Check out this video on Kerpoof for more information.

Not only is Kerpoof fun, but it is a great tool for educators. Kerpoof can be used to create fictional and non-fictional stories for any subject. Pictures can be created to accompany lessons such as the life cycle of a butterfly, places in history with details about the culture, a study of a famous artist, and much more! The possibilities are endless, and the great thing about Kerpoof is that they provide lesson plans to get teachers going!

Using Kerpoof is extremely easy and the website provides directions on how to use al of it’s features. Here is a video on how to make a picture and a video on how to make a movie.

I created an example of how I might use Kerpoof in the art classroom. Students would create a drawing based off of the elements used by Piet Mondrian. Here is my example:
