Simple and easy app to generate animated messages and short stories in mobile devices. Users customize the speaking character and type the message or record their own voice. Catchy!

Response: The Best Ways To Use Tech In The Classroom | Digital Learning for EAL | Scoop.it

How do teachers make informed decisions in relation to a balanced use of technology in the classroom? Where can new teachers become better informed about best practices for technology use in the classroom without becoming overwhelmed and discouraged by the overload of information?


Via Nik Peachey
Melodee Peters's insight:

It's not only a question of balanced use. It's also a question of how to achieve and maintain a balance with the influx of webtools. I always want to try everything to determine what will work best for my students.

Twinvox | Digital Learning for EAL | Scoop.it

Here's a good site for those who care about speaking! Excellent service where people can share their communicative skills as native speakers of a language as they share a good time with someone else who is willing to learn that language through a videochat within the twinvox platform. Find peers and start sharing your skills and learning for free from someone else the language you want to learn. Good initiative, indeed!

As I always trying to make my presentation more remarkable than before, I think it is good tips for me and us. These are really nice to learn for your future presentation especially for those of who have presentation for this semester.

Nice app to foster speaking skills and imagination. Initial and final sentences of a possible story must be enriched and comlpeted with what three images presented may inspire us. Really easy app for mobie devices. A nice communicative activity for pair and group work.

Astrid Heise-Fjeldgren's comment, March 1, 2013 5:29 PM
Hi Ricard, thank you for bringing attention to our app! We feel that we never got the full potential out of the initial idea - do you have any suggestions for changes to the app? Best regards from Astrid and Christian at Ipamki.

Great examples how one can use 21st Century tools in the classroom while every part is well described with "Definition", *Workflow", *Tools", "Workshop Description"... This is how it should be, take it as a very good practice example!

This is a great tool. I could see many uses in business.  It is interactive,  so will keep learners motivated.  On the SAMR model it will fall in the category of Augmentation, useful for show and tell and then confirmation of learning (behaviourism).
