Creating ‘talking photos’ in the classroom

I came across fotobabble today, which is an application that allows you to embed comments directly to your photos in order to share both photo and story with others. They call this a “talking photo.” As they mention on their website, “Fotobabble brings the power and emotion of human voice to social media.” It makes photos “more engaging and personal by adding the energy and emotion of human voice.”

Immediately, I started thinking about some instructional possibilities for fotobabble, such as projects, adding visuals to assignments and digital storytelling. This may be a great tool.
