“This program is helpful for teachers to create video stories about content area or for students to share what they have learned or experienced with others” (FCSP Photo Story 3 Introduction and Tutorial). The uses (for both teacher and student) are countless. Photo Story could be used by a teacher when preparing for a field trip to a museum. The teacher could create a video story including art that will be seen at the museum. They could show the presentation to students prior to the trip. This could be motivational for students and it could set the expectations of what is to be viewed. Students could also use Photo Story in order to share their Science Fair Projects. Using this program would enable students to share photos from the experiment phases, and it would allow them to record important ideas about the photos used.
