Planning your videoconference: Time and Date Planner

Drawing Pictures Online

YouDraw You can draw black and white pictures at this site. You can save it and upload it to a online photo storage site (see below). The site allows you to use thick and thin lines.
Sketchcast Allows you to record your voice while you draw or demonstrate.


Online Photo Storage

To put a photo on a blog or wiki, it must first of all be stored online.
Flickr is the most commonly used online photo storage space, however many schools in the United States blocks Flickr and photos posted on it are not available to these schools.
Picasa Web Albums Picasa is a Google Application, an easy to use alternative to Flikr.
others are:
Photobucket
DropShots
Glogster Create online posters, NEW educational site

Slideshows

Voicethread Add images and record voice to accompany images. Viewers can also record and add comments.
Slide takes still images from your Flickr, Bebo, Photobucket, etc. accounts and makes a variety of cool flash prentations that you can easily post to blogs and wikis from Slide.
Bubbleshare allows you to make slide shows, add captions to your photos, and to record your voice (or your student's voice). When the slideshow is complete, it generates html that you can put into the wiki.
Rock You is similar to Bubbleshare. Again, you upload your photos and then copy and paste the html into the wiki. There are lots of cool additions to make your slideshow move and sparkle. There are some questionable images on Rock You that children could get to by clicking on the slide show. This can be avoided by deleting the generated html between getflashplayer"/ and </a></td></tr></table>.
One True Media also makes slideshow of photos or pictures, allowing you to choose transitions, music and the format of your show.
Animoto - When you chose your music, this site decides the ways that your picture will be shown.
Prezi Truly a paradigm change in the world of presentations. About as far away from PowerPoint as you can get.
