How I Use It
This product is great if you want a quick and easy way for students to synthesize their knowledge. It is great seeing students excited and motivated about sharing their knowledge in new and innovative ways. The program provides students a innnovative platform for sharing their work which would never have been possible without this incredible technology! Students get into the editing of the characters and the voiceovers. It was difficult to have each group record their voice memos in a classroom of 32 students. Students can also get captivated with the design and miss the intended learning for the lesson.
My Take
I think this is a great way to engage students in learning, to get students collaborating and to share what is happening in the classroom to a wider community. I also like that the app allows you to upload any picture for the video. This capability allows students to explore and describe almost any concept in fuller detail. I have students that love Vines- This software taps into that interest, therefore inspiring new more vivid learning in the classroom. Students complete these assignments on their own phones. They are able to take them home, edit them and send me the final copy. So glad students are ignited to share their learning with a wider community.
