Yesterday, Ken told me about Haiku Deck's directions for incorporating video into your presentations.
This is a great find. For those of you lucky enough to be a Mac school, I firmly believe the library needs to promote--prodigiously!--not just the teacher use of iBooks Author, but STUDENT-CREATED iBooks. I've blogged previously (ad nauseum?) about our iPad Trials (though, personally, I think it's more of an iBooks Author trial at this point, but it may be expanding).

46 Education App Review Sites For Teachers And Students We try our best to keep our thumb on the pulse of the best education apps and web tools. In fact, we have probably spent way too much time attempting to offer up as many useful product reviews and helpful lists over the past several years. But we’re just two people. Katie and I can’t cover the entire education app industry by ourselves. Luckily, there are dozens of other sites specifically devoted to education app reviews for teachers and students. Whether you’re looking to find the best interactive whiteboard app, a new way to deliver exit slips, or simply a fun educational game that can be used in your classroom tomorrow, these app review sites are definitely your go-to source.
This week I’m leading a 3 day iPad Media Camp in Oklahoma City. On day 1 we learned about creating 5 photo stories and narrated slideshows with the iPad apps Educreations (free) and Explain Everything ($3). On day 2 we learned how to create “Quick Edit Videos” using the iMovie iPad app. In the morning on Tuesday, I asked participants to submit questions they have and would like me to answer via a Google form. This evening I created a 13.5 minute narrated slideshow, using the iPad apps Haiku Deck (free), Apple Mail, Explain Everything ($3) and YouTube Capture (free). Create a Narrated Slideshow on an iPad with Haiku Deck and Explain Everything

Create slides, draw in any color, add shapes, add text, and use a laser pointer. Rotate, move, scale, copy, paste, clone, and lock any object added to the stage. Add new or existing photos and videos.
