YAKiT Kids – anything can have a pair of lips!

Here’s a starter video for a great little app, YAKiT Kids, which allows you to take any image – be it drawn, taken from the web or a picture you have taken, and add a mouth and then record some speech and watch the lips move in sync. So what you may cry? How could I use this in my classroom?

Well, we’ve seen it being used with pictures from magazines or from museum trips taken of statues, pupils own drawings (monsters and all!!) ,in politics lessons and for telling a picture story with pupils speaking in the first person about the character or object they want to talk. Across all ages and stages there are creative uses for this, for pupils to demonstrate their learning in a different way.
