How I Use It
My students used this app to create book reviews for the various books they were reading. Instead of movie trailers, they created book trailers and uploaded their finished products onto our classroom website and their own websites.
My Take
I enjoyed my students going through the process of creating book trailers. It allows all students in spite of their academic challenges to create and display what they were learning. The app promotes creativity and a variety of presentations.
