Tool #5

THIS tool, I can do!  And do, do!
  1. Use at least two of the tools above to create products. Think about your content. Create a “set” for one of your lessons! Or, consider providing the site as a choice for your students to create products. Make a model for a student created product.
The students will work using famous art quotes to create a storyboard set up using appropriate images that fit the characteristics of the quote.

Art Inspired Storybird is a cute link, but not what we would actually be encouraged to use an an art teacher. It's really cool to see the artist drawn images and be able to storyboard and write the story, but not as a class assignment. Cute site though.

Animoto is one that I use as an art teacher all the time to document the work of my students, student events, etc.... I absolutely love that you drag and drop the images and it puts the photos moving on beat with the music. is our news article which contains the most recent animoto from students creating sandcastles at Galveston, complements of the SBEF $5000 grant!

2. Then, embed both products in your blog or link to the products from your blog. **See Above
3.  Describe for your readers how you think each tool can be incorporated into your classroom - how you could see the tool being used by you instructionally and your students to demonstrate their understanding of a concept or topic in your classroom.
I love using animotos to set the "set" or "hook" of a lesson, or to show off an artist. The kids really are glued to the images that move quickly across the screen.
