We have started a community book blog for our town. Each month our school has a book of the month. We then have our students read the book then we comment on the blog. We make the books available to anyone in our community that would like to read it and participate.
Our book last month was about WWII and was a little to deep and dark and we felt that it would be better to choose a different book to put on the blog. Since we didn't have the money to buy another set of books for the whole school I decided to make an audio recording of a book to place on the blog.
I am also having my students do their own illustrations for the book, I would like to include this on the website in slide show format flowing along with the audio.
My question for you is what tools would you use to accomplish this? PowerPoint is not an option, I can't assume people outside of our school have a copy.
