Teacher Review For Animoto

Animoto is a great way to combine text, photo, or graphics to tell a story about the lesson.

How I Use It
Teachers can use this to introduce a new topic, or for a concluding project at the end of a unit. Students can do this individually or as a group project. Students become editors as they decide what photos can be used that they have a legal right to use. When students are limited to the free Animoto presentation it only allows the student a few picture options, so they must limit what they use to the time limit.
My Take
I like that I could get an educator account and share Animoto with my class. Students liked the ability to include more graphics to tell their story when they went in on an educator's account. Educators need to limit students when using the educator's account or the students will create monster presentations.
