Beyond the basics

Beyond the basics

Bored by the basic essay? Want your teacher to sit up and pay attention? Here are some really cool ideas you may want to consider to show off what you've learnt!

  • Microsoft Publisher will allow you to easily create professional looking posters, brochures, flyers, etc., and if you need any help, the library staff will be happy to assist you.

  • Why don't you try a glog? A glog is a kind of online poster-  a fancy creation with cool backgrounds, text, images, music, video - all designed by you that gives you the perfect way to express yourself.

  • Or what about a voki? Voki is a free service that allows you to create personalized speaking avatars and use them on your blog, profile, and in email messages. You can create a character and use it to present information for a project, or even to practise French or Spanish pronunciation.

  • Why be square? Don't limit yourself to the straight lines of Microsoft PowerPoint! Check this out and then check out preziyourself!

Newsflash!
