I recently posted some alien shots of me on Facebook that I created using Prisma, an app from PhotoLab. I spent some time having fun seeing how I’d look as a nun, an alien, and so on. Below are a couple of other filters that seem like I might use them as covers or on newsletters.
So what good is this app for education? Among the many filters were a few that would process multiple photos. One of them was a globe. I thought that would make a cool class picture. Another idea is to have students select a filter and print out their photo instead of the normal head shot. It would tell you something about that student’s personality and just be fun—and there is nothing wrong with that! This could be a fantastic first day activity.
