FotoBabble



I found out about FotoBabble just now via my PLN's Twitter stream. I read about it on TeflTeacher Blog via the amazing Shelly Terrell from Teacher Reboot Camp. I couldn't resist giving FotoBabble a twirl, so to speak, and here is the result! It's a site which allows you to simply record your voice onto a photo that you can upload from your computer. You need to register (it's free), choose a photo, record your voice, press save and then add to your blog, or email it to your friends. It is that easy! I think the tutorial on TeflTeacher Blog is really helpful and I was able to follow the steps very easily. Next project will be to see if I can embed a talking photo onto a Wallwisher!! Why don't you give it a go yourself? Here is my embedded Fotobabble in a previous Wallwisher that I created.


NB Can you guess what Joey is thinking as Chikita walks past him?

I love your fotobabble and how you asked a question at the end. I think that is a great way to get students to begin a discussion. I really thought the idea of integrating it with Wallwisher was very clever. I like when different tools complement themselves so wonderfully!

Thank you so much Shelly for taking the time to view my fotobabble! I had great fun with it and the ease of creating one really surprised me. I think students would love to try this tool out and combined with Wallwisher, it becomes even more useful and exciting!
