Tales from a Loud Librarian: Creating Audio Book Reviews with Chirbit

Tales from a Loud Librarian: Creating Audio Book Reviews with Chirbit | Digital Tools for Technology Integration | Scoop.it

"Each student in the class was asked to read a book that they liked and create a book talk that describes the plot and recommends the story to other readers. When read aloud, each book talk was to be 90 seconds or less. The students used the tech tool Chirbit to record their talks. I chose Chirbit because the interface is easy to use, and once recorded, a QR code and URL is generated for each Chirbit that a student creates." by Elizabeth Kahn @Elizabeth Kahn

You bought your iPad new three years ago, and now it’s getting a bit long in the tooth.

Opening apps can take forever. Sometimes they crash, stop responding, or won’t open to begin with. If you want to extend the life of your little glass rectangle–and make your iPad faster in general–the following tips can help. And all of these tips are simple(ish)–nothing crazy like jail-breaking or changing hardware.

"My class used Final Cut Express to show we have our eyes on our goals!" --Pretty cool! Shows what creativity & active enthusiastic kiddos can do!


A project like this takes longer than you would think to produce - teachers who want to create videos featuring kids should also consider non-editing choices like Vine.


An iMovie takes me about one hour per minute to edit! So, if you're gonna do this with a class create small groups or like this video the whole class!
