5. Animoto~Jeremy Davis
- Animoto~Catch your student’s attention by creating fun, yet educational videos simply by uploading your images and/or short video clips to Animoto.
- Go to Jeremy’s wiki site to embed many web 2.0 tools.
- Select the Animoto tab in the navigation bar to see examples of using Animoto for educational purposes.
- Add “catchy tunes” to your project to peak your student’s interest- I personally liked the comedic touch he used by using the Johnny Cash song, Ring of Fire for his Animoto film on volcanoes! Remember, don’t go swimming in a lava river!
