Speaking Image

Speaking Image is my new favorite Web 2.0 tool.

Here are the basics of what it does:
  • Upload any image (with screenshot tools anything can become an image.)
  • Label items in the image
  • Embed content on the image (popup bubbles w/images, links to pages, wikis, videos, or just text)
Your image now becomes an interactive lesson or presentation.

Account's are free & require an email address. (account is not verified via email, which is nice for students without email).

Here are some ideas for teachers:
  • Sentence structures w/grammar explanations
  • Interactive tours: w/ maps, art, diagrams etc.
  • School tours
  • Library tours

Below is an example of sentence diagramming.

Here is a great example of vocabulary practice.
