Common Craft just posted this wonderful video that shows how (and why!) they create their wonderful paper-cut animation videos. Worth a watch if you're doing this style of video with your students!

WeVideo provides a "cloud-based" video editing tool that is proving very popular with educators. [Full discloure: I work for WeVideo]. We recently ran a survey of what kinds of videos our customers are creating: half were educators, producing classroom materials, lesson plans, and home work assignments; encouraging student video projects and marking them online. WeVideo starts at Free, so might be worth a look.

I agree with you. If there's

I agree with you. If there's one thing that our students know how to do it's surf and post to Youtube, so why not incorporate it in the classroom. Thank you for the ideas.

What great variety of ways to teach with videos! I am taking an online class from Performance Learning Systems: Merging Educational Goals and Interactive Multimedia Project. I have learned so much and we're just have way through the course. This week's lessons are on incorporating video in the classroom!
These resources sound wonderful!! I think my students would totally enjoy any and all of these. I teach 8th Grade Geography and am excited to give these a try.
Thanks so much,

I have signed up for Animoto, but I really haven't used it with my class yet. I appreciate the Common Craft-Style Videosteps. I look forward to using the Animoto with my class in the near future.

These are great ideas, I have used Animoto for professional presentations, but I think that kids would love it. I also believe it is easy enough for elementary kids to use Animoto as well. What a great introduction to larger possibilities and future options as they become more computer savvy.
Do you have any ideas of creating videos for the classroom with an elementary atmosphere of 25 2nd graders?

How or where do you give credit when making an Animoto video?

is that you put content before video. My students have a difficult time with that at first. They want to pick the format or start taking video before they have a clear idea of the message.

Here are a couple more ideas; http://wp.me/p1Dq2f-bF and http://wp.me/p1Dq2f-jy

Good variety of video options

Thank you for the array of video options. Animoto is so accessible to kids and teachers of all degrees of technology sophistication, it can be used in projects with little preliminary training. Please do make attribution an element of the project, though. The program has a vast music library, so there is no need to use non-licensed music. And Creative Commons photos are readily available, but still require credit.

We offer students and teachers a great project-based science video learning opportunity- the Kavli Science Video Contest. Here is an example from a 6th grade classroom, who made a video, a website, their own musical compositions and recordings, and compiled individual student research projects, all as part of the process http://sciencesavestheworld.wordpress.com/
We hope to see many more inspired entries! Contest deadline is in 4 weeks!
