How I Use It
I recommend using the trailer feature of this app. This is a great way to get students excited about doing a report. I helped a teacher with a project on the Civil War. The students completed their research and then put together a trailer for their part. We then combined all of the trailers into one movie. This was a great project for collaboration between students. It was also a great project for collaboration between myself and the classroom teacher.
My Take
This is a great tool to use across the curriculum. The students quickly picked up how to use this app. However, teaching how to use this app correctly is the key to success or failure. This will cause the initial use to be a little longer than desired, but the it is worth the time spent doing so.
