Digital Tool Explorations

Today we are setting some time aside to explore some digital tools that are different and interesting....and that might spark some presentation ideas for your capstone project! Today is not about having a final and complete end product.  Instead, we expect you to check out the tools and see how they work. Decide which ones you like (and maybe which ones you do not!)  Ask questions, be creative, have fun and learn!

Here are some tools we recommend checking out. As you do this, think: What could I use this for??How would I use it?

*  Microsoft Power Point (On the green start button, select All Programs, Select Microsoft Office and then Select Power Point).  Try different fonts, adding pictures, typing text, changing themes.

*  Kerpoof (Go to: http://www.kerpoof.com/ )  Try making a picture, or telling a story.

*  Thinglink (Go to:  http://www.thinglink.com/ )  You will need our class email and password to logon.   Try using one of their stock images and adding things to it.

*  GoAnimate ( Go to: http://goanimate.com/ ) You will need our class email and password to logon. Check out some of their tutorials. See if you can make a character!

Do you have another presentation tool that you might want to try? Check in with a teacher and share your idea!
