How I Use It
PhotoPeach is an easy to use slideshow generator. In classrooms where a lot of information is presented visually, PhotoPeach can be a huge timesaver when compared to creating a traditional PowerPoint or Keynote. PhotoPeach is currently being used by my Humanities students to create examples of award-winning advertisements. Students search the web for "great" print advertisements, and upload them into their slideshows. From there, students create short captions that tell what the ad sells, what appeal it uses, or quizzes the audience about the advertisement. Students generally finish this project quickly, as little effort is need to actually create the slideshow.
PhotoPeach is a quick and easy way to create slideshows out of a number of photos. The website is free to use (upgrades for a fee), allowing log-in by creation of a username and password, or by entering Facebook credentials. After account setup, users can expect to get started right away by uploading photos to PhotoPeach...three easy steps later, users have a sleek looking slideshow! However, the best part of the site is the editing feature. Users can add features such as on slide text and quiz questions. Overall, PhotoPeach makes creating slideshows very easy, however, there is not a lot of room for students to input their own ideas or reflections. This tool could be a great introduction to presentations, or used effectively to preview or review "big picture" ideas. I would recommend PhotoPeach for younger students, or students who have not yet mastered PowerPoint or Keynote.
