Hi Bridget, I just learned how to use Animoto and have made some really nice slide shows for the family. I mentioned making a "nonverbal short film" like the film BARAKA to my film studies students (how many more times can I use the word FILM?). A few of your creative writing students mentioned they used Animoto in your class. I'd enjoy seeing some of their works if you still have them. Also, I've enjoyed reading your blog. You make each of these technology stages seem so easy and so applicable to teaching. Keep up the good work!!
