Animoto.com and SLF

April 25, 2008
Thanks to Ewan for the nod about Animoto trialling free All-Access passes for educators. Not sure if this counts, but it’s my first attempt at a ‘long’ Animoto… and is a way of whetting your appetites for this year’s Scottish Learning Festival.

I’ve started telling some of my pupils how to sign up for Animoto with a view to seeing how they use it (most of them have talks/presentations to do, and I’d rather see them use something like this than use yet another deadly ppt!)… I’ll post links to any interesting uses they find.

Incidentally, I see from the SLF08 programme that the target audience for my seminar is listed as: Development and Policy Staff, Headteachers & Managers… THIS IS NOT THE WHOLE STORY! It’s supposed to be targeted at classroom teachers, probationers as the main audience… I’ll post more about the intentions nearer the time.

PS: If you want a copy of the QuickTime version of the video, click HERE (The link is good for the next 90 days).

    I thought it would also be a good way of presenting vocabulary in French etc. You have got a bit further than I did with animoto – having made my first video and finally worked out how to embed in edublogs it won’t show the codes anymore – suspect it will only do so if I buy into the full version.

    Great find Neil. Will definitely be using this in the classroom this week. Have just messed about with it and it’s so easy to use – although I wonder if this simplicity could be its main weakness?

    Hi Neil,
    Keep plugging away. I’ll see you in June.

    Boris Johnson?

    Boris Johnson?

    really…

    George Bush has an intellectual equivalent in a position of moderate power.

    Cheers,

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text
    in your content seem to be running off the screen in Opera.

    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to
    let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.
    Many thanks
