A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this website.

Educational value

Kids can learn how to put words and images together to give a lasting impression. They have to create a linear story and may learn some public-speaking skills if they end up presenting to a group. PhotoPeach gives kids experience in gathering information and organizing it visually and discovering the best way to share what they've found.

Positive messages

Kids will feel proud of their snazzy slide shows and may want to share them with parents and friends.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that PhotoPeach is a website for creating online photo slide shows, complete with captions and music. It's a fun, simple resource for kids, whether they're working on a research project or making a multimedia presentation. One issue: music selections can be chosen from YouTube, so kids may get distracted or find themselves perusing inappropriate content.

What's it about?

PhotoPeach is an online slide-show creator kids can use to tell stories, organize photos, or create presentations. You can access photos from Facebook, Picasa, and your own computer, and PhotoPeach walks you through the creation process, showing you how to add captions and music.

Is it any good?

PhotoPeach is a perfectly simple little site that does just what it sets out to do: provide a place to create slide shows. Users only need to upload their media, and the resulting slide shows can look quite polished. It's great that you can choose any song from YouTube, but the video will play in a tiny corner of the screen. This means that if a kid wants to use a Nicki Minaj song as background music for a report on nuclear fission, attention may be divided. You may want your kids to stick to the less exciting (but still decent) preloaded songs.
