App Smashing Tutorial — Canva with Soundtrap

Want to help your students get the most out of educational technology? Consider app smashing Canva with Soundtrap for an audiovisual dream team.

What Is App Smashing? 

App smashing is about using several specialized apps in synergy to complete a task. It’s a great approach for all kinds of creative projects, especially in education. When apps work together, you and your students can easily start the foundation of a project on one platform and then transition to another to create different elements. You can then merge all these elements to create a cohesive final product that’s so much more than the sum of its parts.

Why App Smash? 

Since app smashing requires the strategic use of various applications, it promotes creative thinking among your students, maximizes the value and usefulness of your individual applications, and often creates more engaging final products. When students envision what they want to achieve and which tools they need to get there, app smashing empowers them to bring their projects to life.
