Week 11: Nov 1, 2.


Tools and Apps we will be using today in class!!!!
Using the photos you brought to introduce yourself, we will make a slide show in class, we will share a few with the class . Then add to your favorite on your About Me page of your Website. Share all three in a post.

First we will be using iPhoto on the Mac to make a slideshow. then Animoto, on wither an ipad if you have one or on a Mac. So, by the time we are done, we will have used your picture for 3 projects, all similar. This should give you a good comparison of what each tool does and which is best for which purpose.

  • There is a long list of Photo sites on my Technology Keys Wiki.

  • Of course, this too will be shared in your post on your website.

  • Your 3rd presentation is on the topic of your choice.

  • Of course, it should be educational, think of something you have to introduce to your students, a presentation you could use in your classroom.

  • You choose the tool you use, but must be something other than Animoto or iPhoto.

  • There is a list of presentation/slideshow tools on my Technology Keys Wiki. and that list is only the tip of the iceberg.Take a look at PhotoPeach or Stupeflix.

  • Do a search for slideshow tools.

Great Alternative to Google Images
Here is a great new place I just found that is a wonderful alternative to Google Images for projects

To get your iPhoto project out of iPhoto:

File > Export > choose Slideshow or Quicktime > choose Medium, > un-check the sent to iTunes, export and save to your desktop, Then upload to YouTube.

EXAMPLE of how to get your movie from Youtube to your site. In you tube either grab the short code and edit it then edit down to [youtube KaEfJ68QnUU]

Or use the HTML Embed code.

For Animoto: publish, click the MORE button, click the embed tab and use the embed HTML code.

  • Add all three videos to your website.......Animoto, iPhoto and the 3rd one you made with the tool you found.

  • Add a reflection about using each tool, what the advantages and disadvantages their are with each and which you like best and why.

  • Discuss the similarities and differences, etc.

  • Don't forget to include images and links to where to get the tool.

  • Your favorite show about YOU,should also be added to your About Me page.
