    Hi Jacqui! I really love the “Musical Poem – write poem, add music” that is through Do you know if there is a way to save the students work once they write their own poem and add music?

      Hi Julie

      There is no way to save it to the website, but here’s an easy work-around. Use whatever screencast program you have on the computers. I have Jing–free, versatile, easy to use. Take a screen cast of the poem playing. Jing saves it as a .swf file which plays in Adobe Flash which is included in most computers. Your screencast program may save it as a different format.

      Use the ‘save’ feature to show students more techie skills that they will want to use in the future. You can then save all the screencasts to a web/blog/wiki page for easy viewing by parents, students, other teachers.

      Let me know if I can help with anything on this.
