I first heard about this APP from Linda Braun’s presentation at the iYouth Conference in February. Sock Puppets is a free app that allows you to produce and share content by creating lip-synced videos around 30 seconds long (additional recording time must be purchased). You can then post these to Facebook or YouTube.

This app can help kids learn early learning and literacy skills, specifically those pertaining to language and storytelling in a really fun way. Together with a child (or the child alone) you can select the sock puppet characters, backgrounds, and any props you want to include. Then you record your story, rhyme, or conversation and watch as the sock puppets speak it back to you in a funny voice using similar mouth movements.

What I liked most about this app came from a program idea Linda shared. She suggested that teens use the app to create content for kids, such as an original story or a picture book. The teens can practice their technology and storytelling skills and young kids get the enjoyment of interacting with an older non-adult and building early literacy skills.
