“Voxopop”. Join the conversation

This is the last tool I have been exploring. VOXOPOP, a webtool to create online recorded conversations to practise spoken languages.

We can create public or restricted conversation groups, and our students can make their own recordings at home.

This is an example of activity using Voxopop. The students have been asked to join the Third Grade group and record a personal description of themselves.

TAXGEDO

“Taxgedo” is a web tool that turns any text into a word cloud. It offers more possibilities to play with text than “Wordle”. Visually is more attractive.
In this, you can see my blog’s word cloud. Compare with Wordle’s one and choose.

Exploring “Storyjumper”

Today I have been checking “Storyjumper”. A web tool to create your own books.

You can make adventure stories, fairy tales, treasure maps, photo books, calendars… whatever you can imagine!

What you have to do is to select the scenes and the crops, or upload your own. For instance, could be drawings made by your students. And write a text.

The books contains seventeen pages to fill up. Try it, it’s easy to use. Children will love it.

This book I have build is a translated story invented by my 8 years son, Iván.
