An Example of Teacher Created Technology Integration Using Live Slide
Click on the image
to the left to view a quicktime movie created using software entitled
Live Slide Show. This was done by scanning a comic strip from The
Big Apple Almanac. The strip was broken up into individual panels.
The slide show allows students to review the events following Washington's
escape to Kips Bay after the Battle of Brooklyn.
The buttons allows navigation
through the slide show and with the addition of sound the text can be
narrated. Unlike, PowerPoint, Live Slide Show retains all multimedia functionality
over the Internet. It can also be streamed.
Using image editing software,
such as PhotoShop, the images can be altered to eliminate text and students
can create their own storyboard for the battle sequence.
for a free download of Live Slide Show.
