How I Use It
I used Animoto for students to create short films on themselves as a beginning of the year activity. Students filmed short videos on their goals for the year and their fears or concerns, and then added pictures of family and summer activities. I plan on using the app again to have students build videos on vocabulary words and literary concepts.
My Take
For creation, the app is great! With music built in, students can safely choose open source music to pair with their pictures, and the app takes care of the animation feature, so all videos look amazing!
