Blabberize allows you to quickly animate any image to make it talk, by simply adding audio and specifying the bottom lip or jaw section. Within minutes you have a talking photo. Make a famous person speak, give an animal a voice, even add a mouth to an inanimate object like a hamburger and discuss its nutritional value. The key to utilizing Blabberize is being creative with your lesson planning and encouraging students to be creative with their homework or assignments. Ask students to write a speech, information report or give them a scenario and ask them to write the ending. Students can then practice reading their script aloud into a computer microphone. You can re-record the voice as many times as necessary, so it’s also excellent for pronunciation practice and language learning. It is a really great tool for practicing literacy skills in a fun way.
