This is a fun site for creating mini movies and really easy to use. The students can choose the characters, the music and the context and then write in the dialogue. The resulting dialogue is then played back like a movie. The movie can then be shared on the internet. Students can send it as an email or embed it into their blog.
Create walls for pupils to find – make then public and remind then about safety rules. You moderate all notes and TELL them too!!
