I’m struggling. I’m looking for software that will allow me to make animations and movies for classroom use. I know very little about it, though, and I’m not sure where to look.
Do me a favor: Social studies teachers, especially hop over there and look at the video/animation/presentations they offer — on the Dustbowl, on human rights and Nobel winner Aung San Suu Kyi, on Hiroshima, the race to the Moon, and other stuff. Look at the presentations: Can you use them? Do you have better stuff to use?
Do you make movies or animations for your classroom? What do you use?
What does a teacher need to get started in digital story telling?
The UH site offers a free download of Microsoft Photo Story 3 — have you used it? Good stuff? What’s your experience?
