ChatterPix Kids- Bring your photos and pictures to life!
Works on: iPads and is totally free
ChatterPix Kids is very simple, but effective little app from Duck Duck Moose. Essentially, it allows you to take a still image and make it speak. Users can record a 30-second voice message onto their image. The time limit is actually more of a help than a hindrance as it encourages pupils to be concise with their information rather than waffling on! Once you’ve recorded your message, users have the option to apply filters, stickers, frames and text to their animation. Images can either be added using the camera or they can be imported from the camera roll, which means you aren’t limited with the theme.
From investigating a famous historical character to reporting on a location as an explorer in Geography and from performing a Haiku poem to bringing one of their own drawings to life – Chatterpix really does let your imagination run wild.
It’s accessible enough to use with younger children but the ability to save to the iPad means that older children could potentially create a sequence of animations and edit them together to create a longer video clip. For example, they could animate all of the members of a food chain to create a video presentation!
There are no adverts so users can expect a ‘pop-up free’ experience. Try it out – you’ll love it!
Time needed to learn how to use it and get going: 3 minutes.
