Marvin blogs and ideas

Thanks Allanah for sharing these with me on skype this morning - Sandra Roll's blog has some great ideas her class came up with for using Marvin
Having fun showing the kids the new MARVIN programme. They have come up with all sorts of great ideas of how we can use it.
  1. Could be put on kids blogs to introduce them. e.g. Hi, my name is John!
  2. Could do short 'film' about ourselves using the avatars.
  3. Could have avatars read our stories to the little kids at assembly
  4. If you lost your voice you could type and your avatar could do the talking.
  5. Instead of having published work on paper, we could publish using our avatar or avatars as the narrator.
  6. We could use the avatars to do our speeches. Would save getting nervous and embarrassed.
  7. We could put our presentations on youTube.
  8. The avatars could be 'tour guides' on our blogs.
  9. Mrs Rolls could set up the MARVIN avatars to teach the whole day. No more relievers!
  10. We could use avatars to do plays.
  11. We can use them to teach the younger kids about topics such as science, writing, bike safety or computer use.
  12. Could set up avatar to call out spelling words.
  13. Can make our own 'movies' to show that we understand a topic, e.g. statistics or Spanish!
Don't kids have brilliant ideas!
