Slide Shows

Yet another slide show maker you will say!  Kizoa is really easy to use and allows also for simple editing.  You do have to register, but registration is free.  It also had direct import from facebook as well as editing and then you can republish back into facebook (or anywhere else). Lots of special effects, music too.  Burn slides to DVD, post, or just simply email to friends.
Below is a spring slide show created by students of Lincoln School in Oak Park.
[note: I did go into the code and change the size from 640X480 to 320X240]

Animoto for Education

Teachers can apply for an education account to create unlimited videos.  When approved, you will also receive a code for 50 students to use for 6 months free of charge.

Enjoy this short video of teachers who were part of this year's GVC contest.

Create Photo Effects

You don't have to be a professional or have expensive editing programs to create stunning effects.  PhotoFunia will create them for you. All you need to do is click on the thumbnail of the effect you'd like and then upload photos. The site will do the rest. What to see what that can look like? Here are some GVC teachers using six different effects. There are a few hundred from which to choose!
