possibility of children creating their own videos has become real.
Recently Naomi made her own video "The WebKinz Hat Show"
(with minimal help) and placed it on YouTube. You can see it below.
The Multilingual video project allows Kindersite
users to bring their own children to narrate the same video in their
own language and for it to be placed on the Internet. The project
will interweave, languages and technology to motivate and engage
children. Children will be able to view the different language versions
of the video and understand the words in different languages.
Adults, teachers and parents, can translate the
text of the WebKinz Hat Show (download the translation template
The children can then record the translated text in to MP3 audio
files. The template and audio files are then sent to the Kindersite.
The video will be updated with the new audio and placed on YouTube,
the Kindersite and other video websites. Full instructions are in
A good tool for recording and then exporting as
MP3 files is Audacity
Later we will extend the project to use videos created
by other children. The adults will need to create templates - please
contact me for help.
I hope you and the children will enjoy the project.
