Here is a video from the creators of the App!
It is basically a simple video making app. Here is what I love about it:
Students can do a web search through the App! Not only can you do a web image search, but you can also search NASA, Library of Congress, the Met Museum and More. You can also add images from your own camera roll too!
To record voice, just hit Record and talk! Students tap through the photos in their slideshow and can pause as they go.
The videos we made this week were fairly short, but I love that you can make longer videos! Especially if you wanted to make a class video!
This is my favorite part! You can upload it straight to Youtube, Email it or Save to the Camera Roll!
Shadow Puppet has some great ideas on their website that would be great for every classroom!
My students had so much fun creating their videos! They loved watching each other's videos even more!
We used the app for the first time to publish along with our Informational Nonfiction Books! The students typed their books on Google Docs and then created a Shadow Puppet Video to read aloud their writing. (I'd like to create a QR code to add to the end of their books to link straight to their videos! Hopefully I can get that done!)
Luckily, my fabulous tech facilitator, Teresa, came into my classroom to help teach the students how to use the app! We started out simple and she taught them the basics of the app!
Then, the students went on their own and recorded their videos!
It was as easy as that! All of my students finished their videos in about 90 minutes.
We kept our first videos pretty simple, but I'm looking forward to using the app again and using more of the features.
Here are some of the finished products!
Have you ever used this app? I'd love to hear about it!
