How I Use It
I mostly use Animoto for book trailers. Students map out on a storyboard images and text ahead of time of what they want on each slide. They then find the images, add the text, choose an appropriate song and viola! They have a fabulous Animoto Book Trailer to share with their class. As an incentive to do well on this project, the very best videos get uploaded into my library catalog. I will also use it to present on a topic. For example, if a student is studying the planets, he or she can create an Animoto with information they learned about the planets to teach the class.
My Take
I love using Animoto with my students. Students love to create projects to share information using Animoto.
