Photo Story

I too am excited for this Photo Story project. The samples we viewed in class made by past students turned out very well in my opinion and will be a great teaching tool in the future. The Photo Story program seems like a great way to either introduce a new topic or provide a quick summery at the end of a unit.

For my project I was assigned Social Studies at the elementary level. I am planning on outlining my presentation as a virtual field trip to see different geographic regions of the United States. It is starting to come together well and I am excited for the finished product. I am a little concerned about the amount of time that we have to complete this project, especially since I do not have this program on my laptop to be able to really work on it outside of class. I also can't wait to see the projects of my classmates. Good luck and have fun everyone!

I agree--the samples were all very interesting. I think using photostory would be a great addition to lesson plans or a great way to provide students with an example of what they need to do (if you assign it as a project). For my project, I'm showing the culture of Spain. There is so much I can do for it, I'm trying to figure out how to give a good glimpse of it in 2-3 minutes. I wish we had more time for the project, I think it is going to take a long time just putting it together and making it a great production. The transitions, music and timing of the narration is going to take a while to get right.
