Integrating Technology into Social Studies

CRES students learned about the Great Depression while in the computer lab. Students began creating composite images, using photos of themselves and historical images. They used the transparency feature in PowerPoint to create their final images. Once they’d completed a collection of photos of themselves and their classmates, they saved them and imported them to Photo Story 3. This is a teacher example of how a completed story might look.

The idea for this video was inspired by the series You are There, narrated by Walter Cronkite.
