Meograph: Creating digital stories

meograph

Meograph is an alternative way to present information than the traditional presentations. It is a new way for creating digital stories based on Google maps and timelines. What is even more interesting about Meograph is that the stories created are 4D stories. This means that the presentation can include not only images, text, videos, music, and narration, but also related links that allow viewers to interact with the content more deeply.

One can sign up for Meograph for free in the following link :http://www.meograph.com/. There are also specific extra features for educators, however these require payment. There are three different payments, which are the Lite option, the Plus option and the Pro option. One can further see the options available in the following link :http://www.meograph.com/education. According to the which option you’ve paid, you’ll have certain extra features. Some of these extra features are that it allows teachers to create accounts  for their students without an email address,  to create group pages and private sharing within a class and also to removeadvertisements while working on Meograph.

After using Meograph, I figured out some advantages and disadvantages of using it. The most advantage that interested me is that the presentations are saved automatically. Hence, you won’t loose any data in case of any errors. Moreover, you can access your account on any computer. On the other hand, one of the disadvantages that I noticed is that you cannot add references to the introduction and conclusion slides.

    In comparison to the traditional power point presentation this tool is very interesting and user-friendly, at least in my opinion. I believe that creating presentations in the form of a story grabs one attention more easily. Students become less bored during lessons and maybe they make use of it themselves when they are asked to deliver a speech or something similar in class.The fact that it is not free of charge, may be a burden for several parents and some may not be willing to add more educational costs then those present.
