I loved using Animoto. I made a book trailer for Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and found it to be very easy. It was simply dragging and dropping images into frames, adding text where you wanted it, and rearranging the frames in the order that you prefer. I think students would have fun using this tool and creating their own book trailers. I was nervous about creating a video on YouTube. I can see the benefits of it but I would rather have students use it as a tool to share information about a book or topic they have been studying. As for QR codes, they are a great way to share information about a book or author as well as information about a particular subject. There are so many ways to use these tools in education. I look forward to incorporating the QR Codes in my classroom and share Animoto with other teachers, especially the ELAR teachers.
