Photo-movies are a great new way for students to use digital technology to improve their communication and ICT skills

Photo-movies are made with still images from a digital camera, scanner or free online photo-library so they can be created by anyone, for virtually nothing.


BT Education has produced a mini website containing tutorials on every aspect of production, from scriptwriting and assembling the images to putting on special effects, recording the narration and laying down a music track. There are Teacher’s Notes for suggestions how to set up a photo-movie project.


Whilst this site is aimed at school teachers the ideas can be used for working with post-16 learners to improve literacy and ICT skills.


You will need to register (free) on the site to access the tutorials and Teachers’ Notes.


BT Education also has a tutorial on how to create your own radio programme. See Related Articles for further information.
