Our middle school ESL students participating in the iPad pilot are having a blast CREATING with their iPads! One of their favorite (free!) apps thus far is Animoto!
Their teacher recently taught a lesson on “Feelings” and sent students on a Google Search to find photographs of people whom expressed specific emotions or feelings. Once the photographs were chosen, students took screenshots with their iPads, which added the images to the iPad’s camera roll. Using the Animoto app, the kids uploaded their images, entered text, music and transitions to create a customized presentation on the assigned topic.
Here are some examples of the students’ work: They did a GREAT job and had loads of fun working on the project.
