- This week, I´m developing a project with students of mine with one of these tools: BOOKR. Students will create a photobook describing their best friend. We´ll start the task in the classroom where sts will write sentences about their best friend and imagine what kind of picture would be nice for each page (we´ll use pictures from flickr archive). I´ll demonstrate in class how to create the photobook and how to get the embed code for publishing it on a blog or webpage.
This is an example I´ve created to show them
- BUBBLR - with this tool you can make slideshows or comic strips with speech bubbles using picture from your flickr account or with flickr archive pictures. This is an example I got from the archive
- PHRASR - you can make slideshow from isolated words (from a vocabulary group) or from a sentence. Phrasr finds the right image for your word. It´s great for revising vocab. You can play it as a warmer and them ask sts to write all the words they can remember. Or you can use it to reinforce idioms, phrasal verbs, proverbs...
- MEMRY - make a memory game out or flickr photos. Choose a topic (tag) and play the game. Tags I tried: animals, smiles, friends.With images of people, you can have sts play the game and describe the pictures of people they match.
