iCreate to Educate
iCreate to Educate is a company that enables K-12 classrooms to access tools that would engage students’ creativity. “We believe that kids have a lot of creative ideas, and they need simple tools to express them. We created an application that allows kids to tell their own story through making an animated video,” said Melissa Pickering (pictured), former Walt Disney engineer, who founded iCreate to Educate in 2010.
iCreate’s current portfolio of products include stop-motion movies and a myCreate iPad app that lets students and teachers capture still images from a webcam that can then be played back in movie form like a digital flip book. The company just announced strategic funding from Kaplan Early Learning Group at the conference.
