Classroom Uses:

  1. Projects that require creativity.
  2. Great alternative to a poster.
  3. Great alternative to a power point.

 

 

Considerations:

Workflow:  When the video is finished students can upload them to video sharing and social media sites using the embed tools they can also share a link to the video posted on the powtoons website with their teacher.

Collaboration: Students can not share or add editors to the projects they must be worked on alone or with other students at the same computer.

Saving/Draft:  Work is saved on their website and can be saved and resumed as you log in and out of their website.
