Here is an activity that I taught with the IPad. It included apps as well as websites. I am attaching the lessons that provides the web links and applications used to teach the lesson. What is your opinion of the lesson and how would you use the Photo Card lite app in your classroom?
Slidebomb -a type of digital storytelling presentation tool where students are able to add photos, text, and video. Slidebomb would be a great way to introduce myself to learners! Hmmm, a new profile in the works?
I am currently working on stories of cells with a science teacher. We decided to use screenchomp http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/screenchomp/id442415881?mt=8 because of its simplicity and we have a cart of ipads. The students are going to use an image and then write on the pic and narrate their stories. I will share an example of the final product when we are done. Any other ideas of how you could use screenchomp or the similar jing http://www.techsmith.com/jing.html?gclid=CPzmmOfT5K0CFWnatgodExIzYQ as a storyteller?
I just read over the lesson and it has given me an idea for a unit we are teaching in 5th grade for African American History. I think the students would love to use their iPads to work on a project similar to what you have created. I am going to play around with it and see what I can come up with. Miss you at Montlieu. As always, thanks for the great ideas.
I finally went into storybird and made a story with the kids.

When teaching digital storytelling classes, I often use electronic graphic organizers as storyboards for planning the stories.
Check this out..
If you have ever used Inspiration or any other type of electronic graphic organizer, you will be really impressed with iDesk Lite. The lite version is the free version for the iPad. The free version is so cool I haven't ventured to the paid version yet. You can also import documents from iTunes and Dropbox. The templates are really good. You can draw symbols and then they become part of the diagram.
Try it out and let me know what you think
