Yesterday Erin and I presented several Web 2.0 (or whatever you want to call it…) resources. One of of my favorite sites, VoiceThread, is great for simple narrated photo stories. If you’re creative, you can create games with the drawing feature (Where’s Waldo, What am I, Picture Guess – you get the idea.) But it’s not ideal for it.
Back in my hotel room I came across Sketchcast and became instantly hooked. Go try it out if you haven’t yet, what a wonderful tool.
That’s how it always is, isn’t it? You find a new tech tool for language learning and instantly get excited. You try it out, and three minutes later you wonder how you could have ever lived without it. The list is a long one, I can’t mention all the great apps and resources we now take for granted. From Chinswing to Google Earth, from Comic Life and Photo Story to Pulpmotion. And on and on.
Can’t wait to get used to the next new tool…
