In our final Teacher Tech Training for the Summer, teachers learned how to create a slideshow with sound. They created Digital Postcards, similar to Audio Postcards, but now with images to accompany the soundtrack. They used the free web application JayCut to produce their projects. For many of the participants who came to our previous workshop were able to use their audio postcards as the foundation for their project. They only needed to then search for images that matched their narration and sequence them. For those who joined us for the first time had to write a narration script and record it into JayCut — the application allows you to record audio directly from your computer. Pretty cool.

Here are the results of our teachers. Very awesome work!
