How I Use It
I use this as part of projects that my students develop. As they explore a concept they love to work on their own videos explaining their learning or connecting in an interesting way. At first the students had a learning curve when it came to getting their characters to articulate what they are trying to get across. I also had to limit their time to make sure that they did not spend too much time trying to get a creative and fun video, and to make sure the connections to their learning is being accomplished. The price is one of the major downfalls of the site. I payed for the site and logins myself which was worth it, but to continue year after year can become hard.
As a teaching tool it is amazing to watch the engagement and connections that my students are able to make. I have even had 3rd grade students work on this program and really love what they are able to create. I love to see both the difficulty of the videos increase as the students become confident on the program and the connections that they are making.
