Photo Story 3.1 was developed by Microsoft in 2006. The operating system is Microsoft Windows. Photo Story 3 is used as a photo sharing software. Photo Story 3 is a free application that allows anyone to use this program. It allows them to create a show by using your own digital photos. It also allows you to add narration, effects, transition and background music to create a Window Media Video. Once you have finished with creating your show you can present it on Window Media Player. We have a state-of-the-art computer lab that the students and teacher never use because there is not enough time to fit computer time. Right now the students and teachers are very limited in technology. It is sad that the students and teachers have used the same computer programs for many years. The students and teachers should have more knowledge about today’s technology. So I want to create a training for the teachers and paraprofessional on Photo Story 3.1. It is a great program and is also fun to create. I want for the teachers and paraprofessional to learn how to use a different computer program that will help them and also help the students. This training will help the teachers create lesson that are exciting and more colorful. There are students that are visual learners so this students need to see a picture of what they are suppose to do. This program will help the student improve in their grades and in their performance in school.
