A teacher wanted to have her students retell the stories they were reading by doing videos. As I set off to find something brilliant for them to use, I found Toontastic from our high school Spanish teacher, Mrs. Vollrath. She talked about how she had her high schoolers use them for storytelling when practicing their Spanish.
After downloading the app, I was pleasantly surprised by how awesome it was! The app lets students pick from an array of different settings and characters. It also emphasizes the story arc. I knew this was going to be a great app for what we were going to do.
The students had such an excellent time recording these! It was so easy to use and the kids liked getting to personalize their videos. They were so PROUD of their videos! Check them out here!
