Who Pushed Humpty?

Digital books?

During my practicum, I encountered an awesome teaching tool while working with the technology instructor. He had a digital bok that he projected onto the smartboard screen in the lab. He read the book WHO PUSHED HUMPTY? to his class, and it was great because all the students were able to see the pictures because the illustrations contained clues in solving this mystery.

I asked the teacher following the lesson where he got this digitized book. He explained that he created it himself. He simply took digital pictures of each page of the book and put them on powerpoint and added voice recordings to narrate each page. Pretty cool use of technology, huh?

There's another way to do this - a free download from Microsoft called Photo Story 3. You can search their website and easily locate it. It only works on Windows XP machines, but it's quite simple to use.

Thanks for your suggestion; that sounds great and I'm going to have to check it out!
