College Research & Video Project

The AVID Juniors will be doing some research on the laptop computers over the next two weeks.

They will choose a college, research for information about it, find pictures and video to go with their school and then create a video from the website animoto to describe it.

The page below is used to guide their research:

College Research Project for AVID

The students will create an account on Animoto and then upload pictures and choose text and a song to create their videos. Using Animoto is very easy and friendly to use. Mr. Duez has a code that unlocks the site and will share that during the class period.

Very excited to see what you guys come up with! We'll link to the videos here on the blog when they are finished.

Here's the website to apply:
