Croak.it! So amazing I can't imagine life without it! Yay! I love you, Croak.it! You’re amazing! I heard about Croak.it a few months ago on #1stchat (a weekly conversation about 1st grade on Twitter every Sunday at 7:00 CST). Croak.it is a free website that allows the user to record 30 second audio clips. So what does this mean for education? In my class, I’ve loaded each iPad with the Croak.it app. Once they stop the recording they’re directed to the sharing screen… …and then email the link to me or copy it to embed in another location. Because each Croak.it recording has a personalized web address, it eliminates a lot of the “middleman” work I use to have to do as the teacher finding a home for students’ audio recordings. This has dramatically enhanced our use of QR codes in the classroom. This is tremendously helpful for differentiating instruction. We’re also using them to create book talks. I print out the QR code and students attach the code to the book they’re recommending. Scan the QR below to listen to a student book review:
Story Wheel Spin the wheel and land on an image. Now it's your turn to make up part of a story with that image. You'll have 30 seconds to record your voice as you add to the story. Your voice is played back with the images you spun. Each page of the story lists the speaker and shows the animated image that was spun. Prezi Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre.

Wikis for Everyone - Wikispaces Photo Story The final free download version (3.0) includes the ability to randomly generate background music which is composed on the fly from a combination of themes and also includes basic photo editing and touchup features. The last version of Photo Story (3.1) was included with the discontinued Microsoft Digital Image 2006. It restored the ability to burn a Video CD using the Sonic Burning engine. To burn CDs or DVDs from files generated by version 3.0, users may purchase Sonic MyDVD DVD burning software or the Sonic DVD for Photo Story 3 for Windows  plug in (which burns one DVD per Story). Third party tools, such as Media Coder, often do a very poor (low quality) job of converting Photo Story wmv files - Windows Movie Maker does a far better job of converting into an intermediate .avi format (although this will be some 30 times larger than the original wmv) which many DVD Authoring packages will accept as input.

Prezi Is The Coolest Online Presentation Tool I've Ever Seen At last week’s The Next Web Conference, I was part of the 4-headed jury that evaluated all presenting startups and ultimately decided My Name Is E should be awarded the top prize. It was an extremely close call, since we ended up having to decide between the young Dutch company and a startup that built a simply amazing web application you’re really going to want to check out. The tool I’m referring to is called Prezi, and it allows you to create amazing presentations on the web. If you think you’ve heard that too many times, don’t stop reading just yet, because this one is just plain awesome. It’s an entirely Flash-based app that lets you break away from the slide-by-slide approach of most presentations. Instead, it allows you to create non-linear presentations where you can zoom in and out of a visual map containing words, links, images, videos, etc. Try it out and let us know how your presentations come out!
