This week, I have had the privilege of joining a team of educators from my district at a digital conversion workshop in North Carolina. It was so much fun! I learned so many new ideas, and it challenged me to think of ways to teach in a 21st century way.
I learned so much, and I certainly can't post everything all in one day (besides--I have had very little sleep...), so I am beginning with a fun website.
The website is called Blabberize.com. On this site, you can take a photo and add a mouth and a recorded sound so that it can talk. The one I am attaching is really nothing, but think of the ways it could be used in a room... a character sharing his point of view, an historical figure asking your students their opinion on a historical event, you talking to your class on a day when they have a sub... (We recommended to our superintendent that he begin our opening institute with himself blabberized...lol)
So, check out my short little clip, and then check out the website yourself!
