  • Thing 16: Bitmoji Fun
    Bitmoji is definitely a fun little tool! I read through all the articles and there weren’t many differing opinions about how to use it in an educational setting. I really like the idea of using the bitmojis in a comic. I put one together as an “intro” comic. I ... read more
