How I Use It
Students use images from an assigned topic and brainstorm words to convey their ideas in a quick, easy way for their audience. Conservation of words makes for important critical thinking and decision making opportunities. Music selection can be done through the Animoto library, which avoids copyright issues. Share the finished project right from the device.
My Take
The Animoto app is very easy to use. With a few images from your camera roll, students can demonstrate knowledge and/or share ideas by adding captions or small text sentences. Animoto helps students make professional looking projects in a flash.
