Summer Fun in the Builders: Voicethread and the DE streaming Assignment Builder

Students are always thinking, lets focus and tap into those thoughts.  With Olympics over and schools all over back in session, it’s a perfect time to reflect on all the things that have happened over the summer.  Using video and images from DE streaming combined with Voicethread‘s ability to create a digital story, your students can share their summer experiences via text, voice, images and videos.  Check out our video tutorial below for a detailed how-to.

Ever try to sync audio with a power-point presentation? It can be frustrating, wait is frustrating.  1.5 seconds on slide 1, then 5.8 seconds on slide 2, 2.4 seconds of slide 3 and so on. There’s an easier way.  MyPlick.

Check out the below video to see how easy it is to take one the hundreds of songs found in DE streaming and sync it with your power-point for an amazing presentation.
