Blabberize is a Fun and Creative Way to Liven Up Presentations
101 Days of Free Tech for Teachers, Day 65
Grab your students’ attention with Blabberize. This free resource allows teachers or students to upload any picture, select the mouth, and add sound to make the picture speak. Teachers can add pictures of themselves on their class website to give their students directions, or add fun pictures to any classroom presentation to make it more fun for the students. Students can use Blabberize for student projects and digital storytelling by adding in pictures of characters that can then tell their own story or give their own speech. Pre-made blabbers are also available.
How We Decide Which Free Tech Tools to Feature
Yup, there are thousands of apps, tools, services, websites, and other offerings — many free — designed for teachers and students. So, how do we sort through all of those to feature the ones which are most useful and interesting? Well… we start by sorting through thousands of these things… then we talk to the presenters in the SimpleK12 Teacher Learning Community and watch their videos closely… then we talk to many of the members in the Teacher Learning Community, teachers just like you who are using these apps and tools day in and day out. We’ve been doing this for over 30 years and have, in that time, developed a sense for what’s good and bad. Have we missed something that we should feature here? Most certainly. So, let us know in the Comments section what we should take a look at and we’ll throw ’em into the hopper.
