Galleries

The Galleries section is a place where instructors can share their creations with other teachers and students. The idea is that the sharing will inspire others to create and share their own materials in this repository. It will then be easy to show students or colleagues finished products that show the power of the tools we learn in NOVASTARTALK.

If you would like to submit your work to be included on the Gallery here, please contact us here.

Role-playing apps such as Sock Puppets and Puppet Pals HD allow students to engage in interpersonal communicative tasks which can then be recorded as individual videos to be shared with the class and presented for feedback.

Weather in Hindi

This video could be used as a demonstration of the type of fun and hilarious video students can produce with the Sock Puppet app. The video could also be used as an exciting way to grab your students’ attention for a discussion about the weather on a given day, or to begin comparing the weather in India with the weather in the U.S. or another country.

SOCK PUPPET

SHOW ME, ADOBE SPARK and SOCK Puppets are my favorite apps this afternoon. SHOWME, for example, is a good tool for presentational communication. SOCK PUPPETS is a valuable tool for interpersonal communication.
