How I Use It
One of my students favorite projects is a photostory that represents a country. Students find high quality photos that represent various aspects of a country & then they place them into animoto. They then work to find music that also is representative of the country. These videos are then used as either an introduction or a conclusion to a presentation about their country. Students love showing off their work & do a really good job of developing quality projects. I often have students who then ask to create individual projects throughout the year, often on their own time.
Animoto is a website that can be a very powerful way to help develop an understanding of a topic. Students enjoy the fast paced, action-like movement. They also enjoy the various styles of music. After completing a project, students are excited to share what they created.
