How I Use It
This product includes silly cartoons, so it's listed for middle grades. I think it has applications in high school, though. The final product might be cartoonish, but kids of any age can use this product to show what they learned. The site is a little confusing, but when students get the hang of things, the drag-and-drop format makes things go smoothly.
My Take
Overall this is a great product that can be used in many grades and classes. Students like the themes, and I like the ability to connect already themed movies to units that we do (Greece, Rome). You can upload pictures, videos, and audio files to embed in the projects. Students can also create mind maps with another of Creaza's tools. Storage is limited in the free version, though, and that is a downfall. Additionally, you can't download your files from the free version-- you have to show them from your account (which can be tricky for grading).
