At the beginning of our Roald Dahl book unit, I showed students book trailers. These were trailers that I found on YouTube. I thought that it would be fun for our students to create their own trailers now and show my students at the beginning of this unit next year! We went to the computer lab today and students started to make their own trailers using Animoto. Animoto is a cloud-based video creation service that produces video from photos, video clips, and music into video slideshows. Please see the link below that explains how animoto can be used in classroom settings. This will be done in school but I am allowing students to explore with this at home as well using my username and password that I gave them in class.
Thanks for checking in!
