Creative Writing Teachers REJOICE!
Remember the good times we had watching “Pop Up Video” on VH1 (or am I totally showing my age…?) The VH1 site has an option to make your own Pop Up Video subtitles to some popular videos- but that might not work for most (read ‘all’) classrooms….
An alternative I found is the “Pop My Video” app, which is one dollar and tons of fun. Pop My Video is a fun app that lets users add pop-up bubbles to the videos on their iPhones, iPad or iPod Touch devices. Same concept as “Pop up Video”, but use your own content to create the pop-ups. If you remember the music videos from the past, the pop-ups contained extensions of the content or secrets you might not know while watching the actual video. What a great way for students to extend their knowledge and make otherwise dry topics more exciting.
And it’s only a Dollar…http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pop-my-video/id451681823?mt=8
