How I Use It
Because I only have one iPad and one MacBook, my students don't full access to this app. But they ALL want to use it! Small groups have worked together to create genre-specific movie trailers based on books they've read as well as short films based on Greek myths and events from history.
My Take
The app is so easy to use, all of my students were able to create polished-looking projects with minimal guidance. My only complaint is that, as far as I know, it can't be used on non-Apple computers.
