Cartoons and Puffins, the Magical Media

Embedding Media

OK, here I go again, spending way too much time having fun with all the new webapps available! ToonDoo and Blabberize were both very entertaining!

My post will be a short one today because I have been writing other posts about my blogging addiction, my genius students and former genius student.

I love teaching and learning! So much to learn, so little time. I could stay up all night again learning new things in Activity 6 of the Kick Start Your Blogging Teacher Challenge, but I must go to bed. That way I can start dreaming about Activity 7 and widgets, which just came out.

That means I was free to share and remix, which I certainly did. The puffin in the original photo was very stately and handsome, and he wasn’t blabbering at all.

I’ve also included a couple previously-created embedded media. I use SchoolTube to upload my videos. I like it best because all the videos are uploaded to a school site, with teacher moderators.

Prezi is an awesome webapp. I’m still trying to figure it out. That non-linear feature has so much potential! Here is one attempt.

  1. I love the blabberized puffin! I can really see my students (k to 4) getting a real kick out something like that. And thanks for the Prezi too. I’ve signed up for it, but haven’t had a chance to play with it yet. I’ve had fun in the past with toondoo as well. You can see my play with embedding at Book Frontiers—Movin’ and Groovin’

  2. Lydia, thanks for the visit. I liked Book Frontiers. I was able to visit it by clicking on your name because the link above is a bit off. I couldn’t figure out how to leave a comment on your blog. Do you purposely have comments off, or was I not finding how to?
