I also agree with shared learning something, the education community is not used to.

Lots of great ideas being shared by educators.  There are solutions to provide youth the type of education they require.  It is important to innovate, stop doing things the way we have always done them, utilize technology, work together and stop hanging on to the past way of doing things in education.  Change happens when people with a common vision join together to make it happen.

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.
