It took me a while to actually figure out which one I wanted to use this time. I tried out a few before I actually picked one. Then I got stuck between two, so i said I was just going to use both since they are very similiar. I chose digital photos and digital storytelling. I used bubbleshare.com and slide.com. They both were pretty easy to use. Bubbleshare required you to make an account, while slide.com did not. I have used slide.com many times with my myspace page. I just upload some pictures from my computer and go from there. On both sites, you first upload pictures that you want to use. Then, you choose your design that you want. Slide has uploaded something new onto their site because now you can add music to your slide. Although, I tried many times, but I could not get my music to actually play. After you choose your design, you can arrange your photos, possibly add some extra clipart to spice things up and then your ready to publish your slide. Slide and BubbleShare both could be useful in a classroom setting because it could be a way to introduce pictures that go with information. I have also seen slide.com used on test day. The teacher put the pictures on the slide that we had to write about and it would periodically change and go through every picture several time. It was actually cool! Below you will find a link to both of my slideshows. Enjoy!
