Again, not tried it yet -- Windows only is a downside for me -- but it looks more capable than the Adobe reader, for sure.

5 Ways Student Can Create Audio Slideshows - FreeTech4Teachers | Technology for school | 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 slideshow."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 14, 2013 11:28 PM

Are you looking for new tools that students may use to create slideshows that may also include audio? Richard Byrne has come up with five recommendations. The names are below and more information is available in his post.

* Narrable - currently this site does not have educator accounts, but the FAQ states "excited that teachers are using Narrable in the classroom and we're working closely with educators to develop features and accounts specifically for your needs."

* UTellStory - this site does offer a free account. If you want an educator account (which allows for 50 student accounts) there is a fee.

* Present.me - they also offer a free account, or education account (not free)

* Hello Slide- free accounts are available as well as paid

* Animoto - there is an account for educators that is free as well as paid accounts

Leslie Buford's curator insight, May 10, 2013 10:05 AM

The voting 'eggs' in the suitcase, where each needed to be programmed, are obsolete.  Students and teachers can use their web devices to quickly set up polls and other interactive feedback quickly and easily with web based options, of which this is one of the simplest.  For iPad users, check out NearPod, Socrative, or Doceri, each with its own feature ist, to see which works best for you!  It can be difficult to move from traditonal modes of presentation to building interaction into instruction, but I am trying to plan future PD courses using this type of technology.  I would love feedback from teachers and professional development specialists about what works, pitfalls to look out for, and any other resources that you may suggest.

Nik Peachey's comment, August 4, 2013 3:11 AM
There's quite a long review and brief tutorial of Roon here: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/roon-is-a-slick-easy-to-use-blogging-platform-you-may-want-to-try/ I particularly like the comment in the summary "Sometimes we get caught up in complex blogging platforms, plugins and more. Roon takes all of that away and ensures that you focus on what matters the most – your words." A rich feature set isn't always an advantage. Roon certainly isn't a competitor to WordPress, but it does make it easy to just get down to writing. For students that can be quite an advantage.
Tracee Orman's curator insight, August 4, 2013 9:14 AM

I just tried Roon out and made a post (on my Mac, by the way). I wanted to try it to see if it was something to share with students. It was pretty easy, though figuring out how to change the title of the post from "Untitled" was frustrating (I assumed the "Header" was the title...not so. You just click on it after you save and can change it in the sidebar.). 

 

I'm not sure what the point of giving your blog a title was when it posts as your user name and never shows your blog title. My advice: use your blog title as your user name. 

 

Not sure if I will use this with my students, but it is a simple and easy format. And free. Here's my simplistic post: http://mrsorman.roon.io/untitled
