Okay, I'll admit that sometimes sleep is not option. There are just too many things to explore. Last night I discovered a couple web 2.0 applications that are pure fun.
Fotobabble gives you within minutes the opportunity to add sound to a photograph. All you need to do is to create a username, a password and give your email address. Please be aware that users under the age of 13 are forbidden. You are reminded not to share your username and password with anyone under that age.
Just when I thought that it couldn't get any better I discovered Blabblerize. This application will definitely get your students' attention. You can add moving mouths to your visuals. Once you have recorded what you want to say, the mouth will move as if speaking. What a hoot! Please be aware that users under the age of 13 are not to use this site without supervision/permission. You need to select a username, password and give your email address. It was a blocked site but has been made available for staff use.
