Dear Sir / Madam,
This is Zouhair, an English teacher. I'm going to participate in a presentation next month during which I'm going to deal with teaching English through picture stories. I have been looking for something useful that could help me on the web. However, I haven't yet found anything helpful enough. I'd like to request you to help me, if it is possible, on the following points:

1. I need designed presentation on teaching English through picture stories which could help me design my own one.

2. I need picture stories in the form of separate pictures which we can ask learners to arrange in a specific order to become an understood story.

3. If those pictures mentioned in point 2 are available could you please send me some collections by post? Or by email?

Note: the presentation is going to be for training teachers and for teaching adults.
I'd appreciate your help.

Best regards
Zouhair


Dear Zohair,

Thank you for your comment. Photo Story 3 is a great way to make picture stories. Have a look at this tutorial to show you how it works:
http://www.bteducation.org/img/lib/dialogics/PhotoMovie/index.html

As for pictures, have a look at this tutorial from Beth Kanter who explains how to use photos freely under the Creative Commons licence on Flickr for non-commercial use:

You can also convert your PowerPoint slides into little films using Photo Story 3.

Save your slides as individual pictures (File/Save As/Save as type/JPEG File Interchange Format). Import them into Photo Story 3 and record some narration and export your film to play on any portable device which plays wmv files

On the other hand if you just want to see the slides as images, you can transfer them directly to a portable device without using PS3.

See this guide which explains how to do it:

Hope that helps

Good luck

Joe
