An App of Fun…

via Engaging the Digital Natives by Jerri Davis

While attending TCEA 2014, I learned about a fun, new (new to me) app called ChatterPix. I had so much fun playing with this app I could hardly wait to share it with my teachers!
ChatterPix can make anything talk…yes, that’s correct anything.  ChatterPix is also incredibly easy.  You simply choose a photo from your camera roll or take a photo, draw a line for the mouth, record your voice and suddenly you have a talking picture.  ChatterPix also allows you to decorate your project with stickers, frames and filters to give your talking picture even more personality!
ChatterPix also allows you share your creation through email, FaceBook, YouTube, or you can save it to your camera roll.  I can see many opportunities to use ChatterPix in the classroom.  This app could be used to to show understanding of characters, give summaries of assigned readings, it could also be used to define math terms and shapes. ChatterPix could also be used to teach the alphabet and words that begin with the appropriate letters. Depending on your imagination, the possibilities with ChatterPix are endless.
Here is a sample one of my students created…
