How Can I Teach with This Tool?
GIFs can be a fun option for spicing up lessons, webpages, presentations, and beyond. Creating a great GIF can also stretch one's thinking skills. If you or your students use Macs and want to create GIFs, then GIF Brewery is worth a serious look. It's easy enough to get going by uploading a video or pasting in a YouTube video. From there, just trim down the clip by setting start and end points, and save or share.
Once you've got the basics down, it's time to start digging into the copious options for tweaking and tinkering. Check out the options for adding in text or images to insert some commentary or playfulness. Use the cropping and resizing tools to hone in on exactly what part of the frame should be visible. Finally, dig into Settings, which is the most important piece of the puzzle. Settings is where you can alter the quality and frame rate of the GIF to get it playing exactly how you want it. Unfortunately, GIF Brewery doesn't offer help with this, so do some experimenting and/or some Googling to learn more.
