Last March, “Appy Hours 4 U” featured Mad Lips as a “surprisingly educational” app. You will have to listen to the show to hear all of the educational ideas that were assigned to it. 😉 When featuring an app on a show, I always send out an email notifying the app developer. Many of them actually reply with a customary “thanks” and others begin an email correspondence that turns in to an e-friendship. The latter is the case with Mike from Mad Lips.
Recently he shared a new photo contest he has launched to promote Mad Lips! The winner(s) photos will be included in the standard photo pack with the latest Mad Lips release for all to use and animate.
Before I share more about the contest, let me showcase some fantastic examples of how Mad Lips has been used educationally:
Talking Book Covers: See full blog and info here.
And now to the ... Contest Details: For those of you who enjoy amusing your students, desire 15 minutes or 15 seconds of fame, and have had a secret wish to be a viral meme… here is your chance! All you need is a penchant for the unknown. And thick skin. And a great sense of humor.
Mad Lips is a creative—surprisingly educational—app that lets anyone superimpose their talking lips over any picture. You can use Mad Lips in the classroom to deliver a talking book report. You can use it as a tool for practicing foreign languages. And now you can even use it to make your students laugh. Out loud. At your expense! Mad Lips is calling all teachers and educators to be part of the “Face The Music” challenge. It’s simple. Just send in a picture of your silliest face and the funniest image will be included as part of the standard photo pack in the next version of Mad Lips. You’ll be famous. Your students will love it. And you’ll be part of making the world a better place through creativity and laughter.
- Please send all images to firstname.lastname@example.org
- By sending in an image, you are explicitly granting the right to include it in the Mad Lips photo pack. This means that you grant the rights to use your image and likeness for a commercial application without any financial recuperation.
- All participants must be 18 years of age.
- The winning image will be chosen by the Mad Lips development team on September 30th, 2012. While not everyone will be included in the app, everyone who plays along is a winner in our books!
Good luck on the Contest. I am also very eager to hear how you are using Mad Lips in your classroom. Please share ideas and examples below in the comments.
