Just a few minutes ago on the Official Google Blog a new Chrome experiment was released. The new experiment is called The Peanut Gallery. On The Peanut Gallery you can add your own words to silent film clips by simply speaking into your computer. When you speak into your computer your words are turned into text and displayed in the film clip. Watch the video below for a demonstration.
Applications for Education
The Peanut Gallery could be a fun place for students to experiment with storytelling. The silent film clips provide the visual prompts for students to fill-in with their own little stories. It’s kind of like a visual Mad Libs activity.
