I've known about Animoto for a few months but haven't bothered to use it till the other day. I'm using Common Sense Media's digital citizenship curriculum with all of my classes from kindergarten to middle school. Their lesson called Digital Life 101 suggests that students write and illustrate a simile to describe their digital life. It also goes one step farther and prompts students to create an Animoto video to demonstrate this simile.
Here are two really cool videos my students made in a matter of minutes.
Yes, I think I will be using this site more often in the future.
How do you use Animoto in the classroom?
