PHOTO BEACH: Another VIDEO MAKER for using photos. Has music options on the site. To try it out, I created a PowerPoint File, converted the slides to JPEG, then uploaded them into Photo Beach.
I can see it being used to expand a vocabulary lesson. Small groups could complete a project during one or two class periods by taking photos with theircell phones, uploading them, then selecting those that will fit the specific words their group is assigned.
Consider it for classroom management, too, a way to use classtime more efficiently. Photo Beach could be a useful tool to create beginning of the period “shows” to have rolling when students arrive. Could be review of concepts taught already or a teaser for the lesson of the day. Fun and easy.
