Further uses include narrated postcards for Geography, commenting on photos for History, quick book reviews, commenting on art works – the uses are endless!
Fotobabbles can be embedded into blogs, wikis and other websites and shortly there will be the option of creating slideshows.
Students can use their own photos or those from copyright free or Creative Commons websites and then record a narration. Fotobabbles may be kept private, just remember to ensure the privacy box is ticked and click ‘save’. As with most social media sites, there is a way of reporting objectionable content, but there is no way of ensuring students don’t find any, unless you investigate first and supervise use.
Using Fotobabble in class could be a good introduction to Creative Commons and the moral and legal use of images.
