It’s always great to hear from everyone – sign our guestbook and say hello!
Hiya, I have discovered a new tool for you to play with. It’s different from Flixtime. One thing I like about it is that you can upload more than one picture at a time from your computer. (Just highlight however many you want, then click upload). Also, you can add text to each slide – very good when referencing what is what in a picture.
The choice of music is…. erhm…. a bit noisy for my tastes – but I am sure you will enjoy it! Anyway, have a play with it and tell me what you think. Click here to watch the Slideshow that I made, showcasing the many Flixtime videos we have already made. If you do make any – post the url for it in the comment box, so we can find it. I have started a group within Slide.com and I can add you as a member if you make any Slideshows, then we can share amongst ourselves. Good luck!
If you do open an account with them (it’s free), please remember to please USE YOUR USER NAME (not your real name). www.slide.com
Breaking news: one of you has already sussed out the new software!

It’s: www.radiowaves.co.uk/riversdale Many of you have been having a great time already, and have posted blogs, stories and updated your profiles. We will be talking about this in class tomorrow – a lot of things have come up to talk about. (Remember, we are all learning together how to do this – I have not done it before either!)
But – just until then….
Create an avatar – excellent tutorial with two free websites mentioned where you can create your own avatar image. http://iprimary.co.uk/tutorial.php?tutorialID=015
1) Some of you have been posting links that are ‘dead’ or ‘broken’, or even slightly lost! Meaning, when you have posted a link to your Flixtime videos, they have just linked to the Flixtime log in page. No video. Also, you can always check the link before you post it on your blog!
2) All ‘stories’ have to have titles, and certainly be more than two words long. (You know who you are!). Descriptive, catchy titles are good! Think like a reporter – this is a headline for your ‘story’. I have been talking to Amy about this, and we will be discussing it as a class, i.e the success criteria for a good story, blog, profile etc etc. For Radiowaves, what they call a ‘story’ can be a report, an interview, a diary, a review, or even – a story!
3) Check out the other features of Radiowaves. Search through other stations/reporters/blogs/HQ. You will notice on our station that the stories have numbers next to them – this tells you how many people have read your story! Read some of the stories on the HQ pages – they have interesting stuff there.
Check this out: http://www.radiowaves.co.uk/story/106367/title/ReporteroftheMonthforFebruary2010%E2%80%93CupCakesIceTea tells you about the reporter of the month. (Would be great if one of you could get this one day!)
