How I Use It
I use this product to create short videos to show students how to do something. I especially use this when I want to walk students through multi-step directions with a project or something with technology. This video creation tool allows for a teacher to be "there" with each student. It can allow some students to work independently, but also can allow students an opportunity to watch a video and try something before asking for help. This can eliminate the line of students at your desk asking questions when they can refer to the video that you created. Students could also use this to show their learning and thinking as well.
My Take
I like this free video creation tool for allowing teachers to reach their students in a different way. Students can also use this tool to show their teachers their thoughts and learning as well. This tool can help teachers to be better in tune with student learning because of the ability to see and hear their learning, for free.
