Narrating Images [Slide Show Style Photo Stories] APPS

Note: The following Slide Show MODE APPS can be a bit boring after ALL the other creative media-rich tools now available for storytelling BUT . . . if you challenge students to focus on delivering "performing voices" along with choosing meaningful images that "illuminate" rather than just having literal illustration - you can still deliver powerful artistic experiences with value-worthy applications.

• Consider students constructing a visual storytelling like photo phive story style.

• One of my FAV worthy uses to consider is having students make quick and easy slide show style videos as an "Exit Reflection!"
