Free Expertise for Academics: Say One thing

Disclosure: TinyTap is at present an advertiser on

Final week I wrote about utilizing TinyTap soundboards to create interactive video games and classes. This week we’ll proceed with the theme of sound and make a Say One thing exercise on TinyTap.

TinyTap’s Say One thing exercise sort enables you to document your voice to accompany something and all the pieces that you just place in your slides. That is nice for creating quick classes that college students watch earlier than answering questions. You can even use the Say One thing exercise sort to create narrated ebooks, like this one about Beethoven, to your college students. 

Making a Say One thing exercise begins with the identical first step as all the different actions I’ve created on this sequence. That step is to create a title slide. To try this open your TinyTap account and click on “Create Sport.” That may launch you into the sport designer the place you’ll see a clean slide to which you’ll add footage and textual content. A whole overview of creating your TinyTap slides look good may be discovered right here.

After creating your title slide you may add a Say One thing exercise to it or go on to create your subsequent slide. In my case, I’m going so as to add a Say One thing exercise to my title slide. My full TinyTap recreation on this instance can have a set of slides that begins with just a few Say One thing actions about airplanes then ends with just a few slides that ask college students to reply some questions in regards to the airplanes.

So as to add a Say One thing exercise to my title slide I merely clicked “set exercise” then selected Say One thing. After selecting Say One thing I then recorded my introduction to the sport that I used to be constructing. When my recording was full I selected to have college students advance to the subsequent slide by tapping or clicking on the display. This entire course of is illustrated within the GIF beneath.

To proceed constructing my TinyTap exercise about airplanes I then added a brand new slide that solely had an image of the Southern Cross airplane. To that slide I then added one other Say One thing exercise and recorded myself speaking in regards to the significance of that airplane (it was the primary one to make a transpacific flight from the US to Australia).

After constructing my Say One thing exercise in regards to the Southern Cross airplane I repeated the method to make an extra slide a few Qantas-owned Airbus A380 (the biggest passenger jet on this planet).

As soon as I had made my Say One thing actions about every airplane I then wished to create a quiz slide on which college students would reply questions in regards to the airplanes. To try this I created a slide that footage of each airplanes then selected so as to add the exercise sort of Ask a Query. To ask a query I merely recorded my query then used the tracing device in TinyTap to circle the right reply that I need college students to faucet or click on. A whole overview of the Ask a Query exercise sort is out there right here, a shorter overview of the steps is included within the GIF beneath.

To increase my TinyTap recreation I may have continued so as to add extra slides of airplanes adopted by extra slides containing Ask a Query or Speak or Kind actions for college kids to finish.

Extra Methods to Suppose About Utilizing Say One thing Actions
As you may see above, the entire course of of creating a Say One thing exercise in TinyTap is relatively straightforward. However don’t let that make you suppose that Say One thing actions don’t have a variety of potential makes use of in your classroom. The mannequin of my listening comprehension exercise outlined above might be utilized to only about any topic space. I can see that mannequin getting used significantly effectively when explaining flowcharts or related sequence of steps to college students.

One of many nice issues about TinyTap is you could flick through their enormous library of video games and actions to seek out all types of examples that you need to use in your classroom. That’s the place you’ll discover the Beethoven Say One thing exercise that I discussed firstly of this put up and the place you’ll discover these different examples of Say One thing actions in motion.
