How to Create a 3D Gallery of Images and Videos

Russel Tarr at has come up with another neat tool for students. The Classtools 3D Gallery Generator enables students to create a virtual 3D gallery of images and videos. Each gallery can have up to ten images and or videos. Below each image or video students can insert captions to provide explanations of the significance of the visuals in their galleries. In the video embedded below I provide a demonstration of how to use the 3D Gallery Generator.

Applications for Education
As is demonstrated by the sample, the 3D Gallery Generator can be a good way for students to organize a small presentation about topics they have researched.

The Classtools 3D Gallery Generator could also provide a good way for students to create a fiction story. They could use the 3D Gallery Generator as a storyboard tool in which they upload pictures that they want to use in writing their stories through the captions below each image.

Museum Box Is a Great Way for Students to Create Virtual Artifact Displays

Museum Box is a great tool for creating virtual displays of artifacts that you find online. Museum Box has been around for a while and I could have sworn that I had written about it before, but a search of my archives revealed that I haven't.

Using Museum Box students can organize images, text, videos, links, and audio clips about any topic that they're researching. When completed , students' "boxes" become digital dioramas.

Adam Bellow at EduTecher put together an excellent museum box tutorial a couple of years ago. I've embedded that video below.

Applications for Education
Museum Box is a great way for students to visually organize all of the information that they have gathered and or created about a particular topic. While the tool was designed with history students in mind, it can certainly be used in other content areas. For example, you could have students in a biology class gather and display virtual artifacts about animals and their habitats.
