In the Classroom

Users must be able to locate images or use their Flickr or Picasa login to access their pictures. Showbeyond has a simple interface that is easy to use to create slidecasts. Be sure to check out the Showbeyond blog for frequently asked questions. Choose from a wide or standard story format. Choose a background style and click "Create Story." Upload images for your slidecasts or choose images from your Flickr or Picasa account. Click on the "Slidecast" tab to add text and titles (slide menu,) add music or narration (podcast menu,) set timings and other dimensions of the sides. Finally click "Share story" tab to add a title, categories, and tags as well as determine privacy options.

Record a screenshot sequence using this tool to make how-to directions for projects and post to your class web page along with the assignment. Kids can make a "tour" of online PROJECTS they CREATE. Record a demo of safe internet practices and include on your class web page for parents and kids, and help learning support students (or techno-apprehensive teachers) with VISUAL directions for computer tasks. Have students make projects that show how misleading some Internet advertising can be or to explain effective design principles used in a web site or artwork. Use a slidecast to explain a science experiment, tell a story using pictures of their own choice, explain math concepts using everyday uses, and more. Have students create audio "books" for younger reading buddies by putting pictures and text on slides, then reading them aloud. Record young readers/writers reading their own stories aloud and share the link with parents/grandparents or deployed military parents.
