Funny Movie Maker is a simple free app which lets the user put their ‘mouth’ onto a picture (anyone who’s ever seen the Annoying Orange videos on you tube will recognise the idea!). I can see lots of potential ideas for using this; speaking in role as a historical character, book character, explaining concepts etc.
A child in my class came up with a great use for it. We’ve recently started using our own school superheroes to encourage independent learning skills; Resourceful Ray, Resilient Reggie and Reflective Rita. The child decided to use the App to make the characters speak and give tips about the 3 skills! Simple, but effective!
