Now that I’ve raised some money for camcorders and digital cameras, I’m revisiting some of my “The Best…” lists.
I’ve only written about creating online slideshows and videos in the context of using content already on the Web (though my students have made VoiceThreads with field trip photos they’ve taken). That’s made sense for a number of reasons, including ease-of-use, lack of equipment, and time restraints. And, to tell you the truth, it’s worked fine.
Now that I’ll be experimenting with digital storytelling with photos and videos that students are taking, I need to explore, for example, if there are any easier sites than the ones I listed in The Best Ways To Create Online Slideshows for students to upload their own photos and create their presentations. Those on that list, which all allow you to also grab images off the Web, appear to be equally as easy to use with your own images.
However, I am going to add a new one to that list that does not let you grab images off the web, but seems very, very easy to use for simple slideshow creation with your own images.
It’s called PhotoPeach, and it’s worth a look.
