My Intermediate English class just completed their first assignment to create user-generated content by using a great text-to-speech site and create their own talking animals.
After they all signed-up for email accounts, it was a fun little exercise to get them feeling competent and confident with the computers. On our class blog, you’ll be able to see subsequent scaffolded online activities.
We’re in the computer lab twice-a-week for one hour on each of those two days. Our other Intermediate English class will be doing the same — they will be making their own talking animals tomorrow for posting there.
