How I Use It
I show a variety of ways to create digital memories. Animoto has the backgrounds and transitions, the student supplies the pictures and text. The students put in what level of use they want. - lots of pictures and text, or just a little. Animations are there regardless.
This is a good site for creative usage. The free version only allows for 30 second videos, but it is worth getting a subscription and being able to use all the canned backgrounds - lots of variety. Multiple accounts can be created with the teacher login. Takes a while to set up, but fun later. Needs a good internet connection to upload pictures and to download the video.
