Morfo App: Improving Speaking, Listening, Language and Much More.

Morfo App: Improving Speaking, Listening, Language and Much More. | Kulturfagene | Scoop.it

Augmented reality apps are a little hit and miss for me. Some allow for clear practical application in the classroom, whilst others can be gimmicky.

A teacher told me about Morfo https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/morfo/id418900007 back in summer term and I have been using it in my lessons and training ever since. The app allows you to add an image of a face and bring it to life with animation and a convincing voice-over tool. You can record your own voice into the app and the face will then speak it back. The finished animation can then be saved to the camera roll for use in other apps.

I first used it with Year 4 who were looking at History, Newspaper reporting and direct speech writing. We used the app to create the viewpoints of two historical figures: William of Normandy and Harold Godwinson. The pupils found images of both figures from the web (portrait style) and imported them into the app before adding their VoiceOver providing reasons why they should be King of England. I was really impressed with how this app improved the pupils' persuasive language skills. We then imported the finished videos into Book Creator as part of a historical research document.

 

A number of teachers have told me ways they are using the app, including using it to introduce a topic. For example, Queen Victoria introducing the Victorian topic to engage pupils from the beginning.

 

Let me know if you have used Morfo and if so, how? @iPadteachers.

Re-create Historical Newspaper Reports that include On-location Video Reports - March 2015 | Kulturfagene | Scoop.it

Combining the tools of different apps for one purposeful outcome can be the key to successful use of iPads in lessons. Here is an example of combining the tools of Do Ink Green Screen, iMovie, Comic Life 3 and Book Creator Apps to create a historical newspaper that includes on-location video reports. Similar to something you may see in Harry Potter!

Transforming History Lessons with Twitter

Transforming History Lessons with Twitter | Kulturfagene | Scoop.it
We have recently started a class Twitter feed to extend our classroom beyond its walls and share our learning with the world. The students are so thrilled to upload their work samples for parents, teachers and other classes around the world to see. They excitedly wait to see whether we have any new followers or replies and my inbox is crowded with emails from my students sending me examples of their iPad work to post. They love to hear my laptop “ping”, indicating a new email, and announce matter-of-factly to the class “That was me, just sending you my work for our Twitter”. This latest technological venture for us has brought a new-found sense of enthusiasm to our learning environment.

Last week as part of our History studies we connected with experts via Twitter to completely transform our History assessment. The existing assessment task required students to observe photos of old and new technology and pose and answer questions based on what they could see in the images. I immediately thought of Twitter and the possibility of engaging with experts to answer our questions, and provide us with new information that we could not gain ourselves by analyzing a photograph.
