and more…

This is a great tool for your digital storytelling projects. PLUS, you can enhance your images, and then upload them in Animoto to create even better copyright free videos! Don’t forget that you can make slides in PowerPoint and/or Keynote with stylized text, save the slides as jpg images, then further enhance them in Pixlr. Imagine your learners snapping photos corresponding to the Stations of the Cross, reworking them in Pixlr, and creating an Animoto video with appropriate music recording using the free program Audacity.

If you believe that you can now create, enhance or edit graphics or photos – click the “Like” button.  Once you create something to engage your students, come back and tell us about it.  We’d love to hear from you.
