Activity: Camera and Video
  • We're going to create a short video using Story Kit or Animoto. To begin take 5 pictures using your iPad. You'll then place these pictures into Story Kit or Animoto. In Story Kit you'll add voice over narration (and text if you like) to your images. In Animoto you'll select the images, add audio and create a video.
