What tools you use are missing from this list?
I sat down this afternoon to brainstorm a list of video editing, creation and mashup apps that could be useful for educators. Above you’ll find the nine I came up with off the top of my head, all of which I’ve either used or seen used in the classroom. But I know I’m missing some.
Here are some sample lesson plans or how-to’s for each of the video apps above:
- iMovie: Essex Middle School Edge students use it to make book trailers:
- Touchcast: Peoples Academy Middle Level 8th graders made STEM-focused Touchcasts to illustrate distance over time:
- ReelDirector: How about a video story of one classroom’s activities?
- Explain Everything: Harwood Union Middle School students used Explain Everything to make short how-to videos for iMovie and Google Drive for their peers (bonus ourobouros points for hitting iMovie inside another video app)
And this educator handed over the iPad to her own kids, asked for a stop-motion video and was astonished by how many apps they wound up using to create their magnum opus, Invasion:
What video creation / editing / mashup / squish / bash / remix tools are you and your students using?
