5th Session Reflection
Today we talked about digital storytelling. I have used animoto a lot in my classroom. In social studies class, the students get to decide what format they want their projects to be. Many of them choose to do an animoto. I have heard the kids say how easy it is to use. The only draw back I think is that it limits the text that can be added to a picture. Today Amy said that she didn't see that as a draw back but as a reason that kids need to really think about what pictures they are putting on their animoto. I never really saw it that way. We also talked about and played around with VoiceThread. I have played around with it before but not really in depth. I thought that I could use VoiceThread with my history class by uploading a picture from the Civil War and have the kids record a historical fiction story that they create.
