How I Use It
I must admit I have not used the app with students (though I have used the online version years ago and students loved it) yet, but I will. It would be great to use as a wrap up to a unit so students can demonstrate what they have learned in a fun, creative way.
My Take
What I love about animoto: finished videos look flashy (so people love them and are so impressed); videos are simple to create; words/characters are limited so students must be PRECISE with their word choice.
