Posters are a time-tested way to get kids to synthesize and present information visually. There are many great options, below are a few of my favorites.

Using Pic Collage you can combine your photos in different ways . Scatter photos onto the background of your choosing or create a grid of your photos. Take the best parts of two photos to make one great one. Create a panorama or a mosaic out of multiple photos. Get creative with freeform collages, cutouts, filters, borders, stickers, and text.
PicCollage for the iPad now offers School Settings for the iPad/iPhone, which means schools can turn off the social sharing features of the app and prevent students from searching the web for images from within the app.
Canva is a nice tool for designing infographics, collages, flyers, and slides in your web browser or on your iPad. Search Canva’s library of millions of stock images, illustrations, backgrounds and fonts. Start with beautiful layouts or design from scratch. The new Canva for Education site features eighteen lesson plans. The lesson plans include things like Paul's making historical infographics in which students summarize and visually represent the connections between historical events and their causes. For the elementary school crowd Terri has a lesson called Initial Selfies in which students learn to isolate and pronounce the initial, medial vowel, and final sounds. One of Steven's lesson plans calls for students to build graphics about percentages.
.What is great about this app is that you can make multimedia, interactive collages. It is very easy to use, automatically saves, and is a great learning tool. Beyond creating pictures with links, images, and videos you can also use ThingLink as a powerful organizer, aggregation tool, and curator.
Some ideas include using ThingLink to organize class projects with multiple online components. As digital Portfolios where students can post links to their course work from the year to a single ThingLink, and connect projects, videos, artwork, essays, outlines, posters. etc.
Also, consider app smashing. Have students create a collage using Canva or Pic Collage and then add links via ThingLink.
