Blog Post 12
While searching the internet for elementary education teacher tools. I stumbled upon a website that listed media production tools in elementary schools. It had a list of several media tools that we have used in EDM, but one that I had never heard of, Animoto. Animoto is an application that creates videos out of text, images, and video clips. You can choose from Animoto's stock photos and music selections or upload your own. Images are synched to your music choice, so faster soundtracks flash through images more quickly than slower songs.
I would have students make an animoto introducing themselves to the class. The video will be 30 seconds long and will include music and pictures.

The only downside to this website is that you can only create 30 second videos with the free subscription; if you wanted longer videos then you would have to pay to use this website. All in all I really liked this website; it could be a fun activity for the students to use.
