The Elements App
Tap To Talk
Tap To Talk app is an app available on mobile devices, mac computers, pc computers, as well as hand held gaming devices. The initial purpose of the app was to assist non-verbal people with communication. People are able to click on an image which will express audibly and textual forms of that image. For example, the person could search through to find an expression of an emotion or physical state and then click on the image that expresses want they want. An audio expression/sound/text will occur though the device and the person, thus, is able to communicate. This app is great for special needs students and students who are not able to communicate verbally. With this tool a student in the class can have the mobile device and push the images in order to engage in large group discussions and be a part of the class.
The purpose of this app is to be able to create presentations with your mobile device/ iPad. The app is very simple to use and makes it very quick and easy to make presentations, much like powerpoint but in less time. With this app it is easy to add pictures from the iPad, Flickr, Instagram, Facebook, Dropbox, or other online sources. The program has automatically adjustable fonts to keep the presentation creation flowing seamlessly. It can be used for teaching a lesson, developing a portfolio, giving a report, telling a story, or simply pitching an idea. Check out the great video below! I would use this program for short presentations I want to be visually stimulating.
