What video equipment to buy

I was given a grant for about $3200 for my library (independent school, Middle School library, grades 5-8).  The grant specifies video equipment.  I'd appreciate any thoughts on what I should consider buying.  We have plenty of flip, digital, and video cameras.  I was thinking about investing in some videoconferencing equipment, but I don't know where to start.  Help!!!See More

"Thanks for the replies! I have used Glogster often, but it isn't quite what I'm looking for with this project. Bookemon looks like exactly what I need!"

Tool for writing a picture book online?

I am doing a project with my 7th graders where they will be writing and illustrating their own folktales.  In past years, they've typed their stories on Word and drew in their own illustrations after it was printed out.  This year, I'd like to use some 21st c. technology for the project!  Does anyone have any suggestions for (free) web tools where the kids can write, illustrate (uploading an illustration would be great), and possibly read their tales?See More
