Zoobe is a free 3D animated message app for iOS and Android. Pick a character, add your own voice and pictures as background and you will get a video that will amaze your friends in seconds. You can choose among Paddington, Om Nom by Cut the Rope, The Smurfs, Street Fighter, Maya the Bee, Willy, Vicky the Viking and many more. Great for birthdays, greetings, surprises or to use in your mobile messaging apps and chat conversations.
Kids love this app. They get to choose their own well-known character and add 30 seconds of their own voice recording. An excellent tool to create short greetings or sayings in a foreign language as students can hide within the character and yet still practise oral pronunciation and intonation at the same time. And it's fun...
Triventy is a collaborative game-based learning platform, which allows teachers & students to co-author and play quizzes in class.
Yet another collaborative quiz app. Looks pretty good actually and gets your students interacting with you instantly with a simple pin number which they can access from their laptops or mobile devices.
Drop It To Me at dropitto.me is a free service that I’ve been using for several years. It provides a simple way to receive files from others. You can also choose to have your files sent to Google Drive, Dropbox, or Microsoft OneDrive.
"Since we learn how to create narrated slideshows on the iPad using EduCreations (free) and Explain Everything(the most powerful app available for classroom media creation, IMHO) I create a narrated slideshow that same night to answer submitted participant questions. I’m able to view these readily as Google Form responses in an automatically-generated spreadsheet."
Real-time assessment! Have just watched how this kindergarden teacher uses plickers and it's much clearer now. What a great way to assess your students' knowledge or comprehension of a topic using one single device. Am sure students find it fun too but at the same time the teacher can round up answers to questions in a very short time. Instead of mobile devices, students need a plicker card each which can be kept during the entire school year. I could see using this in EFL classes too. Students can vote on correct answer anonymously and the teacher can see how many students are still having difficulties....
Just came across this and thought how great and simple the idea is. We don't do enough of this with our students. Look at how relaxed they all are, distributed in any which way around the classroom. Some even on the floor! Of course they are also learning through technology... Giving students the autonomy to discover what they want is key to motivating them in my opinion. Some great ideas!
