    See a Power Point another student created last year. Create your own Power Points and share them with the class!

    There are many new ways to create unique assignments.

    Some examples are below: 

    If you need help let us know, or follow the links below to tutorials!

    *Glogster:  www.glogster.edu  :  create your own digital posters!  Record sound, add links and more. 

    *Windows Movie Maker:  Windows Movie Maker makes movies amazingly fun. With Movie Maker you can create, edit, and share your movies right on your computer. Then share your movie via the Web, e-mail, or CD.

    *Google Docs:  when working with a partner or in small groups, Google Docs is a great way to have everyone share the work.  If someone is absent, the rest of the group will have access to the assingment.  Or, save your work to Google Docs and have easier access to it from home and school. 

    *Inspiration (installed on school computers) or www.bubbl.us allow users to create visual/concept mapping in a fun way!

    *MS Publisher:  Create newsletters, brochures, posters, cards, banners, certificates and more. 

    *Audacity or Voicethread:  create and save audio recordings. 

    *Jing:  capture images and video from your computer screen.  Great for walking through step-by-step instructions- for example, Oral Comm How-To Speech.

    *Photo Story:  use digital photos and sound to create personal writing, poems, or other assignments.
