Creating a media file from powerpoint: The Images of Aging Photo Contest

The 8th Annual 2017-2018 Images of Aging photo contest features endearing photos depicting active aging submitted by the best students at ACU, including Emily Adams We’ll announce the contest winners tomorrow!! Usually, we run a continuous feed powerpoint, but I wanted more of a video experience. Duplicating the upload process for the photos seemed… cumbersome.

I took my powerpoint and saved it as a Windows media file using the following steps:

  1. Open the powerpoint file
  2. Click “Save As” and give the file a name in the File name box
  3. Click “Windows Media Video” from the “Save as Type” dropdown list and then click “Save.” 
  4. Your PowerPoint presentation is now saved as a video file. 4.
  5. Run from your laptop or log in to social media accounts such as Facebook
  6. There will be a short delay while the file is uploaded and processed

Helping High School Researchers Develop Questioning and Research Skills- IC4 Research

Several action item requests emerged from the recent IC4 Advisory Board meeting. One of the action items came from teachers who noted that high school students needed opportunities to develop research skills in other courses besides ELA and the traditional research paper project.

I am working on just such a resource. One of the main starting points for all research is the ability to wonder and then turn wonder into an essential research question.

Given that most students learn best from visual resources, I’m using the StoryboardThat app to create the masthead for the emerging researchers resource.
