•  a narrated slide-show story to demonstrate the understanding of new vocabulary.
•  a screencast (a recording of interactions on a computer or iPad display) to explain a complex scientific concept.
•  an audio or video interview of grandparents for a family history project.
•  a historical narrative using images and audio.
•  a first-person audio journal of a historical person.
•  explain a mathematical concept with a screencast.
•  audio podcast to practice reading and speaking in a foreign language.
