Thing #21

I love Photostory! I have used Movie Maker a few years ago and I thought that was great but this is even better. It was super easy to import pictures and I had a blast creating music. I am happy to say that this is one thing I can actually do at school, wow!! I'm having my yearbook kids create videos to show during lunch on the scrolling announcements. They each are creating a video for something Add Videofrom the yearbook. I figured that this would pump up the excitement of the yearbooks which will be delivered soon and will hopefully help to sell the extras that are coming.

My English students are actually using this at the end of the six weeks to create movie trailers. I can't wait to see how those turn out.

I created a video which celebrates my daughter's 15th birthday. My daughter, my sister-in-law and I all went to Disney World to celebrate. It was the first time for both of them to visit and we all had so much fun.


  1. I love your videocast, Kim! You can definitely tell that you had a great time at "The Happiest Place on Earth!"

    By the way, how long did it take for your videocast to process onto Blogger before you were able to publish your post? I have been waiting for an hour and I'm losing my patience!

  2. It looks like you had so much fun. Great photostory!

  3. It is a magical place isn't it? And your music adds just the right touch. I think messing with the PS music is almost as much fun as the PS itself!
    Sounds like you have some great plans for PS with your students...hope some of them will be where we can view the efforts!

  4. This is a great alternative to other movie makers in order to produce high quality book trailers to entice students to check out the books in the library. So much fun and extremely useful! Students are tired of the same old, same old, so it's great to have another tool in the toolbox.

  5. Looks lots of fun...I think you have a great time...
