Just Wow

One of the things I learned at ISTE2015 and from my friends that attended DENSI is that there is more than one way to do things. I am playing right now with importing Discovery Education Videos into the Green Screen App and now I find this video of how to create animations in Keynote from Dennis Grice. Amazing Dennis. Thanks so much for sharing!

The Franklin Institute and The Elmwood Park Zoo!

Trying out some different types of digital storytelling with my grandson this summer. First we tried a green screen video using the Green Screen App by DoInk on the iPad. My grandson talked about his visit to the Franklin Institute to see the exhibition The Art of the Brick.

Next, we tried Anamoto to tell the story of our visit to the Elmwood Park Zoo on Friday. This is all new to my grandson but he needs to know that when his hand hurts from writing things in a journal that we can have fun with his writing and paint digital stories! He likes the cool part after he cries because his hands hurt from writing! He is a lefty and it is very difficult for him to write. I now have more sympathy for all my left handed students!

Infographics with PPT

Infographics are something I would like my students to create as part of research projects in the library. However, I don't want to pay for infographic creation tools. I want to use what we already have and what we already have is PowerPoint. I came across this video today and it just might not be as difficult as I first thought!
