* a picture catalogue activity that can display all pictures in the
journal and allows brushing them up and make a slide show
* a little animation that pulls random images from the journal and
* an alternative view into the datastore - maybe using a 2D layout,
heaps, whatever, displaying nice statistics about space use
* a multimedia ebook authoring activity that allows putting in
arbitrary media objects (sound/video/images/text) from local storage
plus video and audio streamed from the internet. When an embedded
image is then brushed up externally, the new version should be
available to this activity, too.
* a presentation tool where I arrange everything to the point I want
it and the press "keep" to have a good copy in the journal. When
resuming that copy to show my presentation I do not want it to get
automatically overwritten when done.
* a physics experimentation/simulation course, with projects done the
whole year long, as individual activities. At the end of the school
year students prepare a presentation that lets them flip from project
to project, while still being able to touch up the individual projects.
