Animoto and iMovie

I had forgotten just how good Animoto is.

Today, I have been planning a year 7 lesson – Where I Live.  A multimedia presentation year 7 students have to produce.  To capture their imagination and engage them, I decided to use Animoto to introduce the project.  The free version only allows a 30 second movie to be created, but by creating a variety of 30-second movies and using iMovie on my Mac, it allowed me to easily join the strips together.  Therefore, I have now created a movie lasting 90 seconds.  It includes a strip of text and images, a strip of text explaining the task, followed by a strip of images to hopefully inspire them, not forgetting sound throughout. I plan to use this to engage other year groups now.
