Microsoft Photo Story

posted 25 Oct 2013, 13:28 by Leon Annett
This week the learners have been creating a storyboard using Photo Story for Windows.
As part of their Anatomy & Physiology module, learners have been uploading pictures of muscles and adding text and audio to serve as a revision tool.
All learners were assigned between 4 and 6 muscles that they had to create a storyboard for. They were
then all uploaded and shared on their Moodle homepage.
I was very pleased with how they performed the task. They found the software easy to use and made some very good ideas for how it could be used later in their course.
I have never really utilised story boards to their full potential in the past. By using Photo Story I also could think of a number of other uses that could be integrated into my teaching.
And the best thing about it is it is free and takes just a couple of minutes to download.
Below is a short clip of part of one of the students work.
