Hi Renee.
Wow thank you for sharing. This is a very quality presentation. Can I ask how long it took you? I am busy this week, but I want to jump in and give it a try next week. I think that this will be a great teacher resource

Hi Ken!

I certainly enjoyed doing this Powtoon but since the "sound effect" is not working yet (It's a Beta version) I had to find a different way to reach my goal. I grabbed the words and the music on the internet and worked everything in Audacity to have a MP3 that could be used for the whole slideshow.
Powtoon is pretty easy to use when you know where you are going. This one took me about five hours but it was pretty complicated and collecting the sounds and pics was time consuming. I have made another one which is shorter, let's say it took me 2 hours. If you want to see it it's here:

The people in Powtoon are very helpful if you need help.
I'll be looking forward to see what you come up with :-))))
Have anice evening

More brilliance from my friends and thought leaders: Jennifer & Doug

These questions should guide the professional growth of school librarians (new and experienced) and frame the ongoing quest to improve school library programs.
