Crumbling the message

Okay, I am not sure this activity packs any learning punch, but it’s kinda fun making and sending little Crumbles videos.

Simply type words or sentences into the Crumbles text box and they are converted into videos composed of one-word clips from movies and television.  In addition to standard dictionary of videos that appear to be attached to specific words, you’ll find theme dictionaries featuring Homer Simpson and the Bee and Puppycat cartoon series (new to me).

When you have a Crumble you like, share it on Facebook or Twitter or share the link.  I wish there were a bit more variety in the word options and more dictionaries, but this is a giffy fun kinda way to share a little message.  Warning: It gets a bit addicting.

Here’s one I created with a Neil Gaiman quote.  But check out some of the cool stuff created and tweeted by others @crumblesapp

    I can imagine using this for a quote of the day on the front page of the library Web site.

    I hope that our TV news team can use Crumble to add library reminders to their daily announcements. I already use AutoRap for reminders about end of the year textbook returns, but Crumble’s visuals will be more appealing on our news show.
