I used PowToon to create a short video that states my 3 tips I learned while in EDTS 325 (an edtech course for those that are confused at this point)!
I titled this blog post the “not-so-fun” fun website because boy, did I have an eventful time (to say the least) creating my PowToon!
I thought it was relatively easy to use so I was super excited to create my PowToon. However, half-way through I ran into some difficulties! The website started slowing down and every action was delayed. Then it stopped working completely. I spent two hours (or more) trying to get the website functioning again. At first I thought it may be my internet connection but turns out I had full connection bars. Then I thought it may be the browser I was using but nope, not that either. Eventually I gave up and walked away from the computer. Once I returned it finally started cooperating! However, it was still easy to use. I never watch a how-to video and figured everything out super quick and easy. PowToon will definitely test one’s patience! 😉
I would use PowToon in Language Arts class! After reading a novel, students could re-create the story, or their own story, using PowToon! It would be a lot more engaging and interactive than having them write a summary on the novel or write their own short story.
