I am so excited to be the Student Council sponsor at my new campus! We have televised morning announcements, giving me the chance to advertise for the club in a new way: through video! I had no idea how I was going to create an ad, and spent hours on youtube trying to steal someone elses work without any luck.
Fortunately, I stumbled upon Animoto, a FREE video creating site. And when I say it was simple, I am not kidding. I made two 30 second videos in about twenty minutes. They already have slideshow templates to choose from and a huge library with music. You just type in what you want it to say and it does the work!
I don't think I will win any advertising awards, but they turned out pretty darn good:
I love this site so much, I am going to have to find ways to add it to my lessons, either by the students creating something or during instruction!
