You know, I think I’m addicted to apps. I have so many in my phone and my iPad that I can’t even take a picture of anything anymore. If there’s a 12 step program for beating this addiction, I probably better find it. In the meantime I found another app I really like. It’s called Adobe “Voice”, it is only for the iPad and it allows you to make short videos using icons, pictures, music, and your own voice to tell a story. You can send the story to others. You can embed it in your webpage. There are lots of things that you can do with this and the best part is it’s free. Your students can use it to create stories and projects and then they can share those with you as a teacher with their friends and their relatives and fellow students.
Some people believe their problems with this because you can’t load the videos onto YouTube and you can’t save them on your Google drive. But as I said, you can send a link to anybody you want to you can publish them to the public and you can also get a link so you can embed them into your webpage. So there are lots of ways to publish it other than utilizing YouTube and Google drive.
So if you’re addicted to new apps that can help you do your job better as a teacher in your students provide you with more creative ways to tell their stories and turn in their homework, then this is a good choice for you. As I said it only works on the iPad right now. I wish it worked for some of the android tablets. Maybe someday they will get it to that point. But right now if you got an iPad, download it is called voice, it’s free, it’s a lot of fun. And it is one of the easiest storytelling programs I’ve seen in a long time.
