If a laptop using student has collected a series of photos and hand  
drawn images and diagrams, then she might wish to use some tool to  
assist in constructing a slide show with vocal narration. Does eToys  
already support such an endeavor?

I would think that  such a tool would assist students working alone  
or with others to build a viewable class report. Even if the report  
(or narration) itself is then used to teach passive students, the  
process of creating it seems to fit with the constructivist (or is it  
constructionist) flavor of education preferred by the founders of  
OLPC. Not only will the builders learn about the subject of their  
report, they will gain experience in composing reports and in  
expressing themselves in useful ways. This is valuable and engaging  
educational experience.
