How I Use It
I use PowToon as a way for students to do their work. During the work time in my lessons, I like to give students the choice of how they show what they learned or let them choose how to answer my questions. PowToon is one of the most popular choices students make when doing their work. After completing their work, they can share a link to their PowToon in Google Classroom and then comment on each other's work!
My Take
I like PowToon as a way to keep students engaged during the work time period of a lesson. The students enjoy creating them and sharing them with their classmates. Integrating with Google Apps for Education also makes it very easy for the students to work within our everyday classroom environment. Some parts of PowToon though are not student friendly and it can be hard to figure out how to do everything you want to do within the program.
