Weekly Roundup: Kids Tech Sites, February 19

February 19, 2012

Here’s a little example of Picasion, a tool for making animated gifs that I mentioned a few weeks ago. Can you tell I’ve got summer reading on the brain? Stars, stars, everywhere.

Screencast-o-matic is an online screen recorder. I want to try this to demonstrate tools with Kids Tech Club. Results (good or bad) will be reported here later 🙂

Some more music and sound creation tools: Audioboo and  ujam

Creaza: a suite of digital storytelling tools such as cartoonist, movie editing and audio editing.

And from the New York Times, a brief piece on the origins and advances in artificial snowmaking. It certainly has been the only way much downhill skiing could happen this winter!

Next week look for a report from the Cedar Rapids MakerFaire! It’s Saturday, February 25 at the Lindale Mall.
