Over the past week Tara and I have been working on our research report – we decided to do it as a series of short videos – and have ended up getting a Sparkol Pro Videoscribe account to do this. While quite easy to use, it does take some time to create a finished product – especially if you’re wanting to do a voiceover as part of the video. We created the first two episodes in a trial account and iMovie, the third will be done entirely in the pro account (and iMovie for the voice over), and the fourth has been done in a mixture of trial, pro, and iMovie.
However, we have also seen the promise of using this as a classroom tool – not for the kids – but for us to create short snappy videos of concepts and ideas we want the kids to master. Here’s a short video about writing. All videos will be CC licensed for others to use.
