How I Use It
I have used Animoto for many years now in my classroom! I love either creating a hook for a lesson and/or unit. Also, students have used this took for a group or individual work to create a video to showcase learning. They have created videos on predators, the water cycle, landscapes, states and capitols, and created book commercials.
My Take
I really like Animoto. The only downfall is that they used to be completely free for classrooms and now there is some cost to have classes set up. Teachers like free, so I'm hoping they will go back to that. I like that students can easily drag in video and pictures, put them in order, add in their text, and don't have to worry about breaking copyright rules with music since they have some within the site to choose from. I also like how proud of students are when they click on publish and see their work. They have something to show and are proud of the way it looks!
