Websites and Apps for Making Videos and Animation
From slideshows and stop-motion animation to short films and remixes, video-making is a tried-and-true way to get kids engaged in building, demonstrating, and sharing knowledge. And today, creating videos goes way beyond the clunky hand-held cameras from days of yore. Instead, students can not only edit live-action sequences, but also include images and animation to augment their directorial debuts. These video and animation apps and sites offer user-friendly tools and features that make it more fun than ever to get kids' productions created, edited, and polished. There are also a few tools that feature video-based formative assessment, so kids can record and share their video reflections.
