For my RipMixFeed activity I was hoping to try Animoto as I have heard so many good things about it from classmates in other courses. Unfortunately, I signed up as an educator and was told my wait time to set up an account was 1-2 weeks. Well, it has been longer than that and I am still waiting! I will have to try it at a later date. I was hoping to find presentation or video software and I came across Jaycut. It is a relatively easy program to use although I did have some difficulties with setting transitions between some images. I think this had something to do with the speed at which the program is updated. Other than that, it would be a program I would recommend to others.
The video created is based on the Treasures of Egypt. I visited Egypt last year and at the beginning of this school year, I was asked to speak to our Grade 7’s (connected to Grade 7 Social Studies) and share what I experienced/saw in Egypt after Spring Break. I thought I would try to put highlights etc. in video format with music. Enjoy and thanks for viewing!
