More Storytelling Fun With Foldify Zoo

foldify_zoo Foldify is an iPad app that has been popular for a couple of years. Foldify is an iPad app that students can use to design all kinds of 3D figurines on their iPads then print them out to fold and assemble. Last week a new version of Foldify was released, Foldify Zoo. Foldify Zoo is an iPad app that students can use to design 3D animal cut-outs. Just like in the original Foldify in Foldify Zoo after designing their figures students can print their designs with directions for folding their designs into 3D paper objects. Foldify provides basic templates for objects like cars, houses, and people. Students complete the templates by coloring them in, adding their own pictures to the templates, and adding fun digital stamps to the templates.

I first learned about Foldify from a student who used it to create a bunch of characters and buildings that he then used in a video that he made. In his video he and other students provided the voices for each character. The same could be done with Foldify Zoo.

    I still enjoy this old blog that has some great templates to let students create toys like this: http://toy-a-day.blogspot.com

    I think Foldify is great (especially if the price is less than the $5 I paid). I just wanted to throw this alternative out there.
