I tried to create a PhotoStory about the Truman Doctrine. Putting in narration is the tricky part. I can't seem to get that to work on the school computer and I do not have a microphone on my home computer. I did click on the red dot, recorded a little narration. The space of time was present, but no talking.
Students could use digital storytelling rather than getting up and doing an oral report in class. Since students want to read their report many times, creating a digital story, showing it to the class, then commenting on points they believe to be most important could make a student's report more interesting.
I teach IB History at Westchester Academy and I sponsor Model UN. I'm a single mom of a middle schooler who just completed the 6th grade. I love to travel and used that as the theme for my avatar. I also like to sing, read and watch classic (old) movies. For my picture, I created a mosaic showing some of the places I have lived (Texas, Missouri & South Korea) and where my daughter was born (Bulgaria). My favorite actor is John Wayne and the map represents both history and travel.
