Tool for creating animations

I have just learnt about this tool in AllSharing, a ning platform created by Mbarek Akkadar.

GoAnimate seems to have a lot of potential for story telling. One of the features I like the most is that it allows you to record your voice, thus lending itself to developing speaking and listening skills.

Today we finish Week 3. Incredible!
So many interesting things this week:
  • Alicia, Analía and Rita put together a great wrap up in the YG files
  • This conversation created by Vicky Saumell using Chinswing. She invited teachers around the world to introduce themselves. I think she has managed to produce invaluable authentic material for listening practice. Bonus track: listening to some famous webheads talking about themselves. A gem!
