For Storytelling Projects, Cool New Multimedia Tools | MindShift | Technology for school |

"Writing will always be important, but weaving text, images, sound, and presentation together can give students more and different ways to express themselves. Easy-to-use online tools allow students the opportunity to create multimedia projects that demonstrate knowledge and develop useful skills. Check out these new three tools on the scene."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 23, 2013 9:05 PM

This post discusses three tools:

* Meograph, an online tool that allows you to create multimedia presentations that use video, maps, images, text, timelines, audio and links. You can check out a Meograph created by a student (on the water cycle) in the post.

* Zeega allows you "to create an interactive web-based story, pulling content from online sources, including photos, music, animated GIFs, and videos." Zeega is free for individuals. Please note that Zeega is for users over the age of 13.

* Wevideo is a primarily used to create videos, but it allows you to "several people collaborate at the same time." 

There is a comparision chart of these three tools (as well as Windows Live Movie Maker and iMovie11 included in the post.

The Physics Classroom

The Physics Classroom is an online interactive tutorial of basic physics concepts. The lessons use an easy-to-understand language to present common physics principles discussed in physics courses.


The Physics Classroom provides access to...

- physics tutorials,

- Mind on Physics Internet Modules (1300+ questions designed to improve understanding of common physics topics),

- problem sets for practice,

- multimedia,

- animations (ideal for using on an interactive whiteboard or projector-connected PC)

- activity sheets,

- curriculum corner (pdf downloads),

- labs,

- photos, and more.


I suggest practitioners spend time exploring this site before recommending it to learners so they can help them navigate it.


There is a danger, because it is so information heavy, the Phusics Classroom could be a turn-off for learners who are just dropping in looking for something specific.
