Appealing Apps for Educators: How SonicPics amplifies a student’s voice

Appealing Apps for Educators: How SonicPics amplifies a student’s voice | DigitalStories | Scoop.it

"SonicPics is a perfect example of such an app, and it’s one that should be in every elementary iPad classroom. The power of SonicPics is in its simplicity: essentially, it is an app where you can narrate a collection of photos. However, within that simple concept lie multiple transformative strategies for student content creation, assessment of student learning, and differentiation. SonicPics is one of those apps that just works, and once you use it with your students, it will become an app that you turn to again and again."

Doc Horse Tales: Composing via Dialog among Image, Word, & Tech Features

Composing with digital media, in my view, should not be imprisoned in the linear structure of print before media, write-the-script before opening the program with images, music, and technical effects. This position reminds me of the notion that you start an essay with a thesis statement. Such directives seem to come from persons who don’t know “writing to learn” and who haven’t experienced their voice-over forming and transforming in the dynamic exchange among image, word, and other tech features.
