  • e.g. To present information from research projects
  • The following video demonstrates the functionality of Photopeach are examples of story and spiral slideshows. Spiral doesn’t have text.
  • Security levelsPublic = Everyone can viewUnlisted = Only those who know the URL of the slideshow can see itInvitation required= Only those you specify by email can view your slideshow
  • Strategies to overcome these barriers:1) Have to pay $3 a month to be able to add your own music files to slideshow.2) Negotiate accessibility with ICT coordinator/principal3) Look at FAQ4) Could use teachersNeed to install adobe flash??
  • The quiz feature can be used to help students with special needs extend their vocabulary. For example you could ask students to try and identify the feelings displayed in facial photographs. This will extend their understanding of feelings and emotions.Using Photopeach helps cater for the different learning needs of students (e.g. Visual learners)Procedure e.g. Steps in an experimentConcept e.g Life cycle of flowering plant
  • This is because students do not have to use heaps of words to convey meaning. The pictures in combination with words and music tell a story.Students could work together to create slideshows and at the same time develop skills in group work, communication and negotiation.
  • Note that digital storytelling is narrated whereas Photopeach uses text to communicate story.Useful website:
  • Add some quotes.
