How I Use It
I have used Animoto for years as a PowerPoint replacement for teachers and students as well as for beginning of the year motivational videos, open house presentations, teacher retirement celebrations, 8th grade graduations and more. It is my go to site for creating quick and polished slideshow videos. Students and teachers alike love the finished products and how easy it is to use. Could not live without it!
My Take
If only I had 10 more websites that were as useful and as easy to use as Animoto! After suffering far too long from "Death by Powerpoint," Animoto is a much needed shot in the arm. The FREE account for educators is invaluable and I highly recommend it for all teachers.
