Microsoft Photostory 3 is a free software program that is simple to use and quite easy to learn for all ages. (My daughter’s teacher used it for students to make digital stories in her grade 2/3 class.) Basically, Photostory allows you to put combine still images with narration. You can also choose transitions and background music for your digital story. The downside is that you can only use it on PCs and you have to download the program. If your students are using Photostory in the computer lab, they will need a memory stick to save their work on. If you want to share your students’ digital stories on Photostory, you have to upload it to Youtube.
