I'm putting together a four week Keynote Challenge the library is going to sponsor next fall, working through the IT and Film classes. I've blogged before about how awesome I think Keynote is, and how under utilized. Mike Sammartano's Keynote Classroom YouTube Channel has some great examples of what Keynote can do.
Once the challenge is fully together, I'll post about it. In the meantime, I spent time today (never mind how much!) putting together this quick animation to show how teachers can use Keynote to demonstrate, for example, scientific principles. I still have a few timing kinks to work out, but you get the gist! Though it occurs to me I should add a little jingle to it.
You can download the file here if you want to see how it went together.
If you want to see something that will knock your socks off, watch this. Entire story done in Keynote. So add it to your digital storytelling toolbag!
UPDATE: That blogger widget never seems to work. I uploaded to Youtube instead.
