Later this month, TechLearning will be publishing an article I’ve written about how to use something called “viral marketing” as a tool to teach English. This Create a Talking Race-Car Driver is an example. Students can customize a race-car driver and, using the text-to-speech function on the site, compose a short message that their driver will say. They can email their product to a friend or their teacher. I post these creations to my website.
This link can be found on the Examples of Student Work page of my website, where you’ll find other examples of how I use viral marketing with my students.
You can also get a “sneak peek” at a draft of my TechLearning article on my website, which I have creatively titled Samuel L. Jackson and Me but which I suspect will ultimately be published with a different headline.
