A site maintained by teachers for teachers
Fotobabble is an online resource which allows you to create short and informative videos using images and voice recordings. This could be very useful when used in for example a revision lesson. An image of a particular item could be displayed and in the meantime a short description or explanation can be playing in the background. This would make studying easier as the students would have the image and a vocal description. Besides this, these audio images could also be used during normal lesson to complement an explanation or to summarize a concept near the end of the lesson. By recording yourself beforehand you would ensure that all the main points are said as during a summary a point could be left out by accident. Also the teacher could give the students access to these recordings so that when they are studying on their own and find something which is hard to understand they may revert to these recordings which contain a well explained definition of the particular concept or item.
