Speaking Image

Like, like, like. Speaking Image will be a cracking tool for annotating images or pages of music etc. You can add all manner of information in an interactive layer above the image you’re using. Obviously good for maps – but many wider applications too, methinks . .



Not new, just new to me. I’m on the hunt for an ‘instant website’-type vehicle that pupils can use to create their own sites easily, and moonfruit is a definite possibility. Pain-free sign-up, straightforward interface, and enough space for free that they would be able to make something worthwhile. Nice clean, modern templates too!



What a great new app! Webdoc lets you create sort-of online multimedia documents that are searchable, comment-on-able and visually stunning. There are a million good uses for this – I’m going to use it as a homework link to introduce a new topic, I think . . .

I do like this! While faffing around with screencasts today, I came across – a great site that lets you upload a powerpoint presentation and then record a narration using webcam and microphone or just microphone. It creates a presentation that then splits the screen with the ppt on the left half and the commentary on the right. Great for pupil presentations!
