Tech Tools and Further Planning:

Animoto

Student Video Creation (why it works: easy to use & acclimate, quick process [one class period]) https://animoto.com/education/classroom


  • Students create videos to explain a concept (literary device), visually depict vocabulary words, visually explain an analogy, create book trailers, make connections back to previous works studied
  • See student sample here
  • Pro tip: make sure the computers you're working with have updated flash players; be sure your students use your educator code to give them the free pro version.
  • BE SURE TO get the free educator account, sign up, THEN when you're signed in, click to apply for the free educator account.
  • OR steal Kile's code here: a4ekileb6aaf7

Poll Everywhere

https://www.polleverywhere.com/


Poll students (multiple choice, choose an image, free response, OR click an image) via texting from their phones or from their devices.


It's free, it's awesome, and it's interactive!
