ChatterPix Kids



I'm extremely excited about the potential ChatterPix Kids holds for students as they can use it to respond to learning in a quick and engaging way. Here is the basic process for ChatterPix Kids:
  1. Take a picture
  2. Draw a line for the mouth on the object
  3. Record your voice for up to 30 seconds
  4. Add stickers if necessary
  5. Save to the camera roll
In reality, we are looking at a project that shouldn't take much more than five minutes to complete. I bet the kids will enjoy using it! 

Here is an overview of the whole app: :

Here is the final product using the app to report the author's purpose for Tough Cookie:

There are lots of ways this application could be used, but here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

  • Take a picture of an object an add adjectives to describe it.
  • Take a picture of geometric shape and have the shape give its attributes.
  • Take a picture of a character in a book and have them introduce him/herself. 
  • Take a picture of book and give a recommendation.
  • Get a picture of the author of book and have the author share the author's message.
  • Take a picture of a book and share the genre of the book and why.
  • Make figurative language come to life. Use a picture to share personification/idioms/similies/metaphors as if they were taking literally.
Let me know your ideas here on this blog! I'd love to have some comments so that all can benefit from your thoughts.
