VOICE

Today's focus is on tools for voice, tools for expression. Some kids are shy and find it hard to express themselves. Remember when you were a kid and had to give a 5 minute speech in front of the class?! Imagine if you could deliver your speech through your own avatar! Just because some kids are shy doesn't mean they haven't got much to offer.........
There are three types of voice expressions below, click the play button to hear:







Hi Guys, Holly and I are looking forward to seeing everyone Tuesday. The focus for the day will be moviemaker. Using this tool for making a movie or  making a quick presentation for your blog/website.
Thought this clip would help with our planning phase. Don't be daunted by the age of this guy, or the content. Any age from 4yrs old and up can use this tool and create video masterpieces (in the eyes of their Mums and Dads anyway). And as for the content, Holly and I are here to help.
If you are booked in for half a day, we probably will focus on a quicker presentation to get it done in time.
