Flip Text - turn your text upside down

Found this tool yesterday and quite like it. http://www.fliptext.org/

You can type any text and they flip it for you. It's a pity they don't provide you with an embed code, therefore, you have to copy and then past the flipped text to use it.

HOW CAN WE USE THIS SITE WITH STUDENTS?
  • Type a series of questions, flip the text . Ask students to copy the text in their notebooks as fast as they can. Then students use the questions to ask each other .
  • Type any text with target vocabulary / structure and ask students to copy it in their notebooks. Then, ask them to underline the recent words they've learned.

I used this tool with a group of mine to recap vocab (transport). They Loved it. After I had the text fliped I copied it into word and changed colour; font, size. Later I transfered it to a flipchart.

Upside Down Text is a great way to spice up your Twitter or Facebook statuses. I would recommend another website though, Upside Down Text. It works a lot better and it can post directly to Twitter and Facebook.
