Free Know-how for Lecturers: Say One thing

Disclosure: TinyTap is presently an advertiser on FreeTech4Teachers.com

Final week I wrote about utilizing TinyTap soundboards to create interactive video games and classes. This week we’ll proceed with the theme of sound and make a Say One thing exercise on TinyTap.

TinyTap’s Say One thing exercise sort helps you to document your voice to accompany something and every part that you simply place in your slides. That is nice for creating brief classes that college students watch earlier than answering questions. You can too use the Say One thing exercise sort to create narrated ebooks, like this one about Beethoven, in your college students. 

Making a Say One thing exercise begins with the identical first step as all the different actions I’ve created on this collection. That step is to create a title slide. To try this open your TinyTap account and click on “Create Recreation.” That may launch you into the sport designer the place you’ll see a clean slide to which you’ll be able to add photos and textual content. An entire overview of constructing your TinyTap slides look good might be discovered right here.

After creating your title slide you may add a Say One thing exercise to it or go on to create your subsequent slide. In my case, I’m going so as to add a Say One thing exercise to my title slide. My full TinyTap sport on this instance can have a set of slides that begins with a number of Say One thing actions about airplanes then ends with a number of slides that ask college students to reply some questions in regards to the airplanes.

So as to add a Say One thing exercise to my title slide I merely clicked “set exercise” then selected Say One thing. After selecting Say One thing I then recorded my introduction to the sport that I used to be constructing. When my recording was full I selected to have college students advance to the subsequent slide by tapping or clicking on the display. This entire course of is illustrated within the GIF under.

To proceed constructing my TinyTap exercise about airplanes I then added a brand new slide that solely had an image of the Southern Cross airplane. To that slide I then added one other Say One thing exercise and recorded myself speaking in regards to the significance of that airplane (it was the primary one to make a transpacific flight from america to Australia).

After constructing my Say One thing exercise in regards to the Southern Cross airplane I repeated the method to make a further slide a couple of Qantas-owned Airbus A380 (the biggest passenger jet on the earth).

As soon as I had made my Say One thing actions about every airplane I then needed to create a quiz slide on which college students would reply questions in regards to the airplanes. To try this I created a slide that photos of each airplanes then selected so as to add the exercise sort of Ask a Query. To ask a query I merely recorded my query then used the tracing software in TinyTap to circle the right reply that I would like college students to faucet or click on. An entire overview of the Ask a Query exercise sort is out there right here, a shorter overview of the steps is included within the GIF under.

To increase my TinyTap sport I might have continued so as to add extra slides of airplanes adopted by further slides containing Ask a Query or Discuss or Sort actions for college kids to finish.

Extra Methods to Assume About Utilizing Say One thing Actions
As you may see above, the entire course of of constructing a Say One thing exercise in TinyTap is moderately simple. However don’t let that make you assume that Say One thing actions don’t have a variety of potential makes use of in your classroom. The mannequin of my listening comprehension exercise outlined above could possibly be utilized to only about any topic space. I can see that mannequin getting used notably properly when explaining flowcharts or related collection of steps to college students.

One of many nice issues about TinyTap is that you would be able to flick through their enormous library of video games and actions to search out all types of examples that you should utilize in your classroom. That’s the place you’ll discover the Beethoven Say One thing exercise that I discussed originally of this put up and the place you’ll discover these different examples of Say One thing actions in motion.

  • A Say One thing exercise is included in the course of this sport about area to supply just a little leisure break.
  • Say One thing is used all through this exercise constructed on pictures from an elementary college subject journey.
  • Use the Say One thing exercise sort to create a narrated photograph album.
  • Say One thing was used to create this audio image e-book of the traditional story, Three Billy Goats Gruff (one in all my daughters’ favorites).
