Educator+Geek: Updates Every Week

Tool #9: Animoto

Type:  Video, Slideshow Production

Teacher:  All Levels (any teacher that requires student presentations)

Student Use:  Visuals for presentations, Reflection activities

Animoto creates stylish slideshow videos with minimal work from you.  You upload your images, you pick your song (from their library or your computer) and Animoto does the rest.  30 second shorts are free after creating an account. 

My students have created Animotos for symbols in The Great Gatsby and as reflection on Night.  I’ve used Animoto for anticipatory sets. 

The example below is one I made for fun (my first try with Animoto) using images of my dogs.  All of the effects are done by Animoto during rendering (takes about 5 minutes).
