  • Students can draw pictures and add 3D effects to images.
  • Students can make voice recordings to add their own voices to images.
  • The app is more simplified and easier to use than Photoshop.

Weaknesses:
  • May have a steeper learning curve for inexperienced students.
  • Students need an artistic background to really master the app and its controls.

Opportunities:
  • Students ca share pictures, music, and images with a worldwide community of artists.
  • Students can createy music, digital art, or vector designs for free.

  • There are not many security settings to control access to accounts or information.

Ideas for the Classroom:
  • Students and teachers can collaborate on a single project to create an image together.
  • Students can create both their own music and album cover for a comprehensive, multimedia project.
  • Students can experiment with photography and learn about photo editing through Aviary's simple photo editing software.
