My Simple Show – Presentation Tech Tool

I came across  when listening to a podcast from 

I made a quick video to check out how it works. Here’s the gist. It’s an online platform that converts your PPT or written script into a movie. The software reads your script or PPT and adds the words to a storyboard. The software then reads the words and searches for images that relate to your words and auto-populates the picture part of the storyboard. You can modify sequences and pictures easily throughout the process. Once your text and pictures are set you choose audio features and finishing touches. Audio features on the free version include selecting the type of voice, the speed of the voice, and some background music, for example. The paid version includes the ability to embed subtitles, but I wasn’t able to explore this feature. I could definitely see this working in any class that involves student presentations. You could use it to change up the style of presentations and/or an option for those students who aren’t able to produce oral English yet, or those that are too shy to present. Just another tech tool that could add some extra student engagement into your classroom. Let us know if you have any questions and we’re happy to help you try this out! Thanks for reading! Trish
