How I Use It
I used this site as a way for students to plan their public service announcements in my computer class. It worked very well. Students could either use the extensive clip art library or upload their own images to create their scenes. The students then downloaded the storyboards they created as images and imported them into iMovie and then added music. It was a great success. The only issue I had was that the printed storyboards were very small. So, I reviewed them online instead of printing them out.
My Take
Overall, I think this is a great site. What I liked was its ease of use for both me and my students. It was very easy for me to manage my classes. I could either email students, provide a link or print out instructions for students to follow to sign up. Students found it equally easy to navigate and were immediately engaged. This is a great tool to help students plan videos, animations and or any story. It has an extensive library of clip art so it can be used in all subjects. It also provides teachers with articles, example storyboards and lesson plans. What more could you ask for?
