I am and will always be a fan of slideshow software. Animoto has always been my favorite and Voicethread has done a lot of updating to stay in my top three, but for those of you who have made the switch to iPads, Haiku Deck is a convenient app that will help you make amazing slideshows with the touch of a screen.
They even have a Pinterest board so you can see some examples of slideshows created by other teachers and judge for yourself.
Looking for free educational videos arranged by subject and topic?
First, I assert that DPS’s subscription to Safari Montage is the best option, with closed captions, attached lesson plans and discussion guides, the ability to show only a brief portion of any clip, and to make your own playlist. This fall, teachers should be able to upload our own files to our playlists as well.
However, WatchKnowLearn offers a wide variety of clips that are accessible by students. This makes it a more flexible option for now. Check it out!
