How I Use It
I would use this tool as a means of animating student creativity via poetry or narratives; students are able to match audio to images in order to bring writing and experiences alive. This website worked as an option to publish student work; however, due to the large range of gathering images and gifs, students will run into inappropriate materials that are not suitable for school/ classroom viewing/ use or age/ maturity levels of younger students. I would strongly suggesting setting tight restrictions for use of this site and to provide a disclaimer to students and parents.
My Take
This product is a powerful, impressive presentation option that I would afford to older, more mature students due to the scope of information present on the site. My concern lies in accessibility on school servers due to the range of information, images, and gifs; therefore, I would mention it as an option for a project that requires the majority of the creation to be done on student time outside of the classroom.
