Create animated pop-up books to tell stories, then view them online or as an augmented reality overview using Zooburst.
So much more than just a video repository, you really need to lift up YouTube‘s bonnet (hood) and invest a little time tinkering with it’s multitude of useful features.
Woices allows you to produce audio tours by uploading mp3 files (or use the Woices app) and locating them on a Google map. In reverse, if you have the app on a smartphone with gps, you can find ‘echoes’ as you move around in the real world.
Provide a series of frames containing media items and have your audience members add comments (audio, text, annotations or video) – Voicethread is an excellent tool to mediate formative feedback.
This is a Voicethread by Y6 students at Heathfield CPS providing feedback on ech others writing:
Wiggio brings together in a single application an extensive toolset to make working with a group of people so much easier. Incredibly useful if you’re not co-located, or even just have difficulty getting together synchronously.
A collaborative workspace for meeting with colleagues/students who are not co-located, Twiddla provides a lot of bang for your buck where features are concerned.
Either consume or publish content through Squidoo on topics of interest. A different way for students to feedback their findings, research or projects perhaps? And have an authentic audience into the bargain?
Here you need to have a good look over the points and ‘prizes’ Squidoo includes which are geared towards encouraging users to add content. Can they be used as motivators (extrinsic?) for your students, or will they simply distract them from the task at hand? As always, preparation is key and you’ll need to provide a framework within which students have sufficient freedom to express themselves, yet also are guided to stay ‘on task’ to ensure your learning goals are met.
