Downloading Micrsoft Photostory 3
For easy to use, free digital story software, using Microsoft Photostory 3 is a fair option.Most of us are familiar with the Microsoft interface, so its not hard to learn the new software.1. Downloading the SofwareGo to the Microsoft Photostory 3 download site.Click on the Download button.A dialogue box will appear asking you to Run or Save the file 'PStory.msi'. Select Save.A new box will pop up, showing your files.Navigate to where you would like to save the file. My Documents is fine for now.2. Installing the SoftwareGo to the My Documents folder (or where you told the file to save).Double click on the file PStory.msi"Run" the file, when asked by the next dialogue box.You will then be asked to go to a website to validate your software.This is a checking process by Microsoft, to make sure you have a real copy of Windows.Only then are you entitled to the free Photostory software.So follow the prompts to validate your software at the website.You may need to return to the folder you downloaded the software to, and double click the MSPhotostory icon, to restart the installation. For some reason, the validation interupts the installation. You may have to start it again.Follow the prompts in the Installation Wizard, clicking "Next". Just accept all the default settings.Once you click "Finish", the software will appear in your programs list(Start > Programs).The software is easy to use, click around, have a look and have a go!

Sharing the knowledge

Thanks heaps L2L crew and Sydney institute of TAFE and Powerhouse your knowledge and wisdom has enlightened and inspired me. I now have creative practical tools to enhance classroom activities and engage young people with creative expression.
sharing my experiences with a few of my colleagues they too are waiting with baited breath to hear the music and visual compilations.
I cannot not express my humblest gratitude enough for the opportunity to learn new skills that have expanded my learning and teaching capacity.
peace & respect felicity
