I promised the 3rd and 4th graders an online video to display recent work regarding spelling rules. What I would love is for them to tell me, “Mrs, Stading! We want to do an online video for _____________!” but I know they aren’t there yet. However, if you are ever going to move forward, you have to start somewhere.
Animoto might be that place for them. I know it is my starting place.
What I like about Animoto is that it does all the fancy stuff for you…you just add words, photos and videos. It is also super easy to revise. For example, the first version of the video doesn’t showcase the student work very well…but the animation is lovely. So I tried a different version and now it is about the students, and not about Animoto.
