In terms of student engagement and creation in these areas, the possibilities are endless. Unfortunately, there has been an over reliance on the use of PowerPoint or slide shows for presentations, limiting creativity and too frequently resulting in students reading from the screen. More recently there has been a shift to the use of interactive presentations such as Prezi, which has both its strengths and limitations. When I was attending the PARCC ELC in Chicago recently, I attended a workshop on close reads using primary source documents.

Using Animoto in the Classroom It’s unusual for me to write a blog post extolling the virtues of a single edtech tool – I usually prefer a rundown of several resource that can be used for any given subject, because there are so many brilliant tools out there to feature and usually so many advantages and disadvantages to using each one. But Animoto is a special case! It is incredibly easy to use, which is a huge plus for the classroom, but also presents a really wide and flexible range of possible uses, which isn’t always the case with the simpler end of edtech tools. If you’re not already familiar with Animoto, it’s a website that allows you to make your own videos by choosing a background template from a wide range of options, adding a piece of music, and then creating a completely unique compilation of photographs, video clips and text, which is then all magically pulled together into an incredibly professional finished product. The real beauty of Animoto is its sheer, joyful flexibility.
