PowToon is a delightful program which allows you to create animated videos, simply and quickly. I stumbled across this program and was intrigued by the simplicity of it. I decided to play with it, and invited my 9-year old son to learn with me. In a total of 15 minutes, I put together a video invitation for an upcoming I.T. Committee meeting for my staff! In addition, my son is now busily creating his own animated videos. What a great tool for both adults and students!
How to use it in your classroom:
- Create instructional videos for visual learners.
- Create animated event announcements for staff, students, and the community.
- Have students create their own animated videos explaining what they have learned at the end of a unit.
