Free Technology for Teachers: 5 Ways Students Can Create Audio Slideshows

Free Technology for Teachers: 5 Ways Students Can Create Audio Slideshows | Makerspaces | Scoop.it
Somewhere between a PowerPoint presentation and a full-fledged video is the audio slideshow. Creating audio slideshows can be a good way to add meaning to slides that otherwise might not mean much without a presenter. Here are some ways that students can create audio slideshows. Narrable is a neat service for creating short narrated slideshows. UtellStory is a service for creating and sharing audio slideshows. Present.me is a handy service for recording video and or audio to accompany your slides. Hello Slide is a tool that you can use to add voice narration to slides that you display online.Hello Slide is different from services like Slideshare's Zipcast because instead of recording your voice you type what you want the narrator to say.

For many teachers, online games are the scourge of the classroom – a drain on students’ attention, time and potential. Any educator who has ever tried to teach a lesson using online resources or taken a class in the computer lab has probably experienced the frustration of finding a student on a gaming site instead of sticking to the intended lesson plan. But online games don’t always have to be a distraction
