Mind/Shift recommends what it calls cool, new, and easy-to-use multimedia tools for students. Meograph (with teacher licenses beginning at $19.99) helps students create multimedia stories with “Meograph Moments” that may feature video, audio, timelines, text, images, maps, links, and student narration about their moments. Zeega, free to individual users, lets students make their own interactive Web stories as they capture content available in the cloud. Zeega stories developed by students may be viewed by others who “click their way through each story, one webpage leading to another. . . WeVideo, with free and for pay versions, is a video-editing collaboration tool that your students can use to upload media clips and edit them. A group of students can work on a project at the same time, and projects can be stored in WeVideo’s Google Drive App.
