How I Use It
I have used this program in many ways. Students have made videos about themselves as an introductory activity and I've also had them made a book video to present their favorite book to the class. I've also had them summarize a chapter in social studies by creating a video on the key points. Very fun and students are engaged. I've had them make individual products as well as group.
My Take
This is an easy to use program that really doesn't involve many technical skills. Once student learn how to upload images, it is very easy for them to create a product they are proud of.
