Blabberize is a free online tool that allows you to quickly create talking images, providing some great opportunities to foster student engagement and collaboration.
“Tech gives the quietest student a voice.”Jerry Blumengarten
Ideas on how you can use Blabberize in your classroom?
- Have a piece of student writing plus their drawing? Take a pic of the image, add it to Blabberize and have your students make their writing come alive by making their drawing “say” what they wrote! (Instant engagement) See this example.
- Students could show what they know by making historical figures defend their decisions, explain their actions, etc… in short videos; use it as a quick formative check or as part of a longer project. See student example here about Sam Houston or check out this humorous one about George Custer.
- ELA connections: Students could put words to novel characters or a talking poetry activity.
- Foreign language: Have students record their voices practicing Spanish set to an image or a picture. See this example.
