This week in professional development one of our technology gurus, Jen Baselice, led a lunch and learn session on using Powtoons.  This program allows you to create videos pretty quickly and effectively.  It may be a little tricky to learn at first, but in no time at all, you are up and running.  I am posting my first Powtoon here and invite you to try it.  This one took me about 40 minutes, and it's far from perfect, but it sure is a fun alternative for content delivery. I'll bet students can make some great Powtoons too!  There's a lot more cool features that I didn't use here and I can't wait to get started.  I know the next one will be better and faster!  Did I mention the best part?  It's free! 

Feel free to post questions in the comments below, and I'll do my best to answer them.

  3. I would love it if y'all would post the links to the videos you make. It would be fun to see what you come up with!

  4. I'm currently taking technology in education for my second masters, and I genuinely feel the consensus of the group is that powToons while slow to get started is by far the best web 2.0 tool available.
