How I Use It
A picture is worth a thousand words, and though fotobabble limits you to 90 seconds, the ability to share a picture with audio is an wonderful tool when providing technical assistance. Our coaches take pictures in the classroom, and then are able to use talking pictures, like fotobabble, to add notes, clarifications, suggestions, kudos, etc.
My Take
There are many potential uses for fotobabble, I have used in a variety of ways. One of my favorites has been for distance learning students to introduce themselves, much more personal than a standard discussion board post. I do wish you had the option to download and save the fotobabble, as other talking photos apps allow. The necessity to have an internet connection may hinder some users.
