A colleague told me about this site and I unleashed my students on it.  It really is a simple idea that hits on some major components of the Story and Design aptitude from A Whole New Mind.  It’s easy and lets students focus on telling a story, not on learning new software.

This is really an easy upgrade.  Students can go to the lab and research pictures for the unit you’re on.  I did something similar with the Industrial Age.  Then have students put these pictures together into Animoto.  It’s quick and easy, but it helps them learn story and design.

Remember – It’s not a new lesson plan.  It’s just an upgrade!
