How I Use It
I provided the students with what needed to be included in the book review. The students decided how they would use Animoto to create their book reviews. I did this with students after novel units so they did it in groups. They took turns recording each other reading parts of their reviews, including a short summarization.
My Take
The students LOVED creating book reviews with Animoto. Music, video, images, pictures, transitions, and text can be added.
