How I Use It
Animoto is good at making students summarize stories by using pictures only. Projects could be shared via a web link and published. Students would be able to comment / review other student work. Great for individual and small group. Can be used a a homework assignment as well.
My Take
I like Animoto for students to piece together the problems of history using relevant images. Even the available music can set the tone for the project. I find it must be used occasionally so that students see a value in the activity, not just a fun way to make a presentation.
