This is an excellent tool for creating online learning or getting students to presenttheir work. Just add the script for each slide and it autogenerates images and voice to go with the text. You can then tidy up and edit it or add your own voice.

Why Leaders Need to Grow Authentic Self Esteem, by Homaira Kabir

Why Leaders Need to Grow Authentic Self Esteem, by Homaira Kabir | Primary School Teacher | Scoop.it
"There was a time when we believed self-esteem to be the royal road to flourishing...However, later studies showed that increases in self-esteem did little for our happiness or performance, but ample for our egos. Professor Roy Baumeister's work with self-esteem showed that we'd been raising a generation of narcissists who went on to wreck havoc in their lives and in their workplaces. It now appears that we'd been building the wrong kind of self-esteem -- the kind that is contingent on external factors such as social approval, success or attractiveness...However, authentic self-esteem is different. It's a feeling of worth in our abilities and qualities. As such, its not conditional upon external evaluations -- instead its an inner security that provides us with the courage to step out into the world and do the right thing...This is especially important for leaders of today."

Smart by Nature: Schooling for Sustainability , by Michael K. Stone, Zenobia Barlow

Smart by Nature: Schooling for Sustainability , by Michael K. Stone, Zenobia Barlow | Primary School Teacher | Scoop.it
"There is a bold new movement underway in school systems across North America and around the world. Educators, parents, and students are remaking K-12 education to prepare students for the environmental challenges of the coming decades. They are discovering that guidance for living abundantly on a finite planet lies, literally, under their feet and all around them -- in living soil, food webs and water cycles, energy from the sun, and everywhere that nature reveals her ways. Smart by Nature schooling draws on 3.8 billion years of natural research and development to find solutions to problems of sustainable living, make teaching and learning more meaningful, and create a more hopeful future for people and communities." Read on to learn more about School by Nature's efforts to inspire tomorrow's leaders and innovators.
