Aviary is all about providing 'artists of all genre's' with free online creation tools. As English teachers we explore texts. All types of texts. Written, visual, spoken etc. Part of this exploration involves us asking students to respond to texts in a variety of ways. Through writing, music, art, and any other venue we can think of.
What I really like about Aviary is that it is accessible for everyone. You can you use the image editor and create artwork. Or use the the Image Markup tool and upload an image and edit it - see example below. The music creator lets you make music or you can use the audio editor to make a radio station.
