This has helped me understand the importance of keeping educated and how easy it is to fall behind. I hope that I can find future professional development that will provide as many tools and resources as this program.
Through my exploration I had the most fun with thing 6 and 10. I love to play with my photos so these two gave me the chance to create new images. The video in thing 15 gave me insight to how society has changed with technologies advancements.
Here's a program where it's ok to be a couch potato.

I have used Photo Story in a writing class before. This is a great tool to get students
to write. It gives them the opportunity to pick pictures and create a product that incorporates writing and technology. This is also a great tool for teachers to compile the pictures taken throughout the year and then create a memory album to save for themselves or give as a gift to students and parents.
With the movie about to hit theatres, I wanted to see what teacher tube had on Where the Wild Things Are. I found a video that translates the book for the hearing impaired and a librarian that takes you through a book walk. I posted the trailer of the movie just in case there is anybody out there who has not seen it.
My daughters school always takes field trips to see the movies that are produced from a book. One great way to incorporate a learning experience would be to compare an contrast the movie to the book in a WIKI. I have never placed a video in a WIKI so I searched the teacher tube and found a tutorial.

I like that google has a Doc tool because I already have an account. It's also neat how you can save the document and retrieve it from any where that has Internet access. I think the only down fall would be if you lose the Internet.
