My brother George and I came across an interesting and humourous website a while back called Emotion Eric. Basically, the site features Eric, a guy who will portray any emotion you send him. Some of these are hilarious.
Emotion Eric also has an adventures section. This is an equally funny area where the user can view several of Eric’s wacky adventures.
While inspiration has come from more peculiar places, George, a teacher in Alberta, decided this would be a great idea for his Grade 8 Language Art class … and I really think he’s right. Now, he’s put together his own digital story book (eBook) … and while not ground-breaking, I am certainly going to use this example with my preservice teachers to demonstrate that even simple uses of technology can be tons of fun … and well worth the time.
