Great idea! I will use it with my ESL students. They could make a video of their home- family and share with the rest of the class.

I really like this idea. Just passed this onto our Spanish teacher.

Great idea for an application for Adobe Voice! I love it (although I can't understand a word of it!)

Hi Frederik,

No lesson plan for this. It was just an example of how you could use Voice in teh foreign languages classroom.

I would definitely follow these steps:

  • provide outcomes and criteria for marking
  • get students to story board and write a draft copy of the introduction on paper / other platform
  • get students to think of what sort of images they will use - or find their own and upload to iPad / upload to a dropbox folder
  • intro students by showing them the basic workflow for the adobe Voice App
  • let them play with the app to learn the necessary skills and to problem solve some skill deficiencies
  • let them create
  • have a 'sharing session' with a friend for a 'mid point' feedback
  • polish their videos according to feedback from friends
  • have a class 'sharing session' and have students feedback using the criteria given at the beginning.

I love this idea and could have used it last year when I had three Chinese Exchange students. :)

I will definitely be using this lesson plan. :)
