This past weekend, I spent half a day sharing a variety of content and ideas with English teachers, as well as encouraging them to create. Here are fun photo tools you can use to enhance teaching and learning:
1) 30 Hands Learning (free): This free app has worked phenomenally in the past by allowing you to sequence images from your Camera Roll, add audio to each as independent slides, then publish the narrated photos/images back to your Camera Roll as a video. Although they’ve been experiencing some technical difficulties (e.g. audio sync hasn’t been perfect), the CEO, Eric Braun writes (via email on 11/10/2013;2:04pm) the following:
Good news! Apple just approved our latest version of 30hands Mobile, which I believe will resolve your synchronization issues and speed up publishing. Included is a new color palette, too, with skin tones and the ability to select from a full color palette.
We would love to hear about your publishing results.
Keep in mind, you do not need to recreate any presentations, only republish with the updated version. After the update, check on the settings tab to see that you are using version 1.3.40.
Thanks again for your feedback and support!
3) Everlapse (free): A new app that Jeanne Reed (@jeannereed1) introduced me to earlier today. It just lets you create and publish a web-based slideshow/flipbook sans audio. Playing around with it, I made the following creation:
