E-Pub research
My E-Book Very simple to use.
You can select different templates or create your own. You can insert
pictures from your computer, Flickr or picassa. You can add text. You
can add music with audio embed code and I tried using vocarroo and it
worked. You can add video and other cute stuff. Also you can publish
your booklet through a link, embed code, twitter and more.
Might work for our group, still checking other options.

Mrs. Sharoff's Class - Handshake
The images were taken with an iTouch using the WordFoto app, then transferred to PicasaWeb Albums using the PhotoSender app. The images were then uploaded to the Jigsaw Planet website.

Donna Ryan's Handshake (Group 6)
We found the images of Washington, D.C. on the internet and opened them in iMovie. We connected the video camera directly to the laptop, and recorded our students' descriptions in front of a green screen. We simply dragged the video over top of the image, and selected green screen from the menu that appears. Be sure the length of the picture is as long as the video. We added the introduction and transitions also using iMovie. We uploaded the video to vimeo to share.
