One of our teachers recently acquired a digital camera, and asked for some ideas for its use to engage her students. She wanted her students to use the camera to illustrate creative writing stories, but simply putting pictures in a word document, or printing them out, seemed “old fashioned”. I suggested an often overlooked free application called Photo Story 3 for Windows. Photo Story creates slideshows with your digital photos. Stunning special effects can be added, titles, captions, soundtracks, or even the students own narration can be added. Small file sizes make it easy to send your photo stories in an e-mail, watch on a computer, smart phone, or embedded in a Wiki or web page. Photo Story has a table top flat learning curve that anyone can master. Easy, polished, and with certain student engagement, it’s a classroom “do-able”.
