What type of tools could students choose from to heighten the message of their original writing with sound effects, vocal effects, music and images?
Movie Editor & Presentation Tool Combination
  • First start out by creating slides in a presentation tool, such as Haiku Deck (web based or on the iPad), keynote or PowerPoint. Add relevant images that represent and support your poem mood, text and message. Haiku Deck will automatically search within the Creative Commons domain for images and add the proper attribution citations on each slide for you. If you are using another program, search for Creative Commons, Public Domain images and give proper attribution for each image used. As always, you are encouraged to take your own images to use.
  • Keep presentation design principles in mind: more image, less text, rules of third, quality images (high resolution photographs)
  • Export the slides as individual images. When in Haiku Deck, export as a PowerPoint File, then save as jpegs (all slides). You can also take screenshots of each individual slide and save as images.
  • Drag and drop exported images into movie editor software (iMovie or Movie Maker) timeline
  • Add transitions, sound effects, voice recording, music
  • Export movie project as a movie file
