I want to thank Ms. Sinckler a history teacher at Banneker for this project idea.

Part I

Choose two of the Walking tours from the book: Walking Brooklyn: 30 Tours Exploring Historical Legacies, by Adrienne Onofri. Search for the book on Google Books; Barnes & Noble; visit the Brooklyn libraries.

Follow your selected tours and do the following and post on your blog :
  1. Create a multimedia representation use ( Slideshare, MyPlick , authorStream and Joggle)

Blabberize is hilarious its a great way to make people say what you want them to say without any penalty.

Yeah in my eyes this site is a waste of internet space. Nothing interesting, nothing different. Its just a site that lets you upload a picture then it make either the mouth or stomach move to make sound. The pictures were also JUST pictures,yeah you could do effects with them but that's nothing new or exciting..

☆★mn2508e↗↗↗ said...

I can make anybody open their mouth and speak=)

Blabberize is interesting. it was a creative way to talk and say what you want without being punished in anyway. it is a funny site and everyone should try it out if they like

FallenAngel95 said...

Blabberize is a good website in which you could make your own videos where only the mouth moves. IT is funny the way it is composed and the sound effects of it.

ankomammitchell said...

I think that blabberize.com is a pretty cool website because it has funny videos. Also blabberize.com has talking animals doing funny things.

anuska said...

I think that blabberize is very funny but the effects are kind of horrible. Dispite its imperfections, overall it is a good website.

Blabberize is a very fun site it that the funny side out of you. The only thing that i don't is after you have finished your creation you can't edit it.

Going on blabberize. com was very resourceful to me. Why? Because I could transform many characters and also I was able to talk with my peers/ class mates.I was able to talk into the computer mike and hare my voice replay.

I think that authorstream is a good website. It is just like youtube but you can download powerpoint presentations. It was fun!

Blabberize is amazing!!!!!!!

Olivier Charles said...

Blabberize is an amazing web app thank you miss Williams

Godwin said...

Blabberize is a website where you can crop your images and make them talk. You can make them talk by either recording your own audio or you could upload an audio that is on your computer. Personally, I think Blabberize is fun because you get to make still images interactive and make them talk and you don't usually see that now a days. I give this website a thumbs up and i recommend it to any one who would want to kill time by having fun on the computer.

Blabberize is a very interesting website and it is very fun to use.

stevie412 said...

I think that this is really good.

AlexBoi1295 said...

I think that Blabberize isn't a well thought out website. The graphics used to create the image of a talking picture is horrible. The website itself needs more funding for more options and ways to make it fun. Blabberize gets a thumbs down!

lewis said...

It was Fun
I really liked working on it .
I can say that it was the funniest thing we did in the class.

Thumbs up all the way
