PowToon in the Classroom

If you want to jazz up the way you or your students present information, may I suggest PowToon. Some say that it is a great alternative to PowerPoint presentations and there is a review/tutorial of PowToon on our “Tools for Making Videos” post. It is easy to use and fun to create up to 5-minute videos with the free version. While I haven’t had the pleasure of using it with students, I did create a summary video of an article for a graduate class to show as an example:

PowToon provides video tutorials for those who are new and need a little guidance in learning it. Once you or your students get it, you can create a video in no time. Below are some ways in which it can be used in the classroom according to their blog. If you have an example you would like to share, please do so in the comments or go to the Contact page.
