PimPamPum-Tech tools for teachers
A useful tool if you want to get your students writing dialogues. Students can choose from millions of pictures supplied by FlickR, add them into a presentation and then write about them through using bubbles similar to what you see in comics. There is an incredible number of high quality pictures ot choose from. Really nice site, easy to use , free and it allows students to get quite creative. You can also get students to stand up and present their work too. This really is a useful language learning website and one I have often used.
