Educational Uses of Digital Storytelling

Educational Uses of Digital Storytelling | Creative Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Digital Storytelling is the practice of using computer-based tools to tell stories. As with traditional storytelling, most digital stories focus on a specific topic and contain a particular point of view. However, as the name implies, digital stories usually contain some mixture of computer-based images, text, recorded audio narration, video clips and/or music. The topics that are used in Digital Storytelling range from personal tales to the recounting of historical events, from exploring life in one's own community to the search for life in other corners of the universe, and literally, everything in between.

HelloSlide - Bring your slides to life

HelloSlide - Bring your slides to life | Creative Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

a tool that you can use to add voice narration to slides that you display online. instead of recording your voice you type what you want the narrator to say. Where you might type "speakers notes" in other slide programs, in Hello Slide you type out the narration. Hello Slide creates the audio and narrates your slides for you. While the voice is slightly robotic, it is much much better than most text to speech services.
