Create animations and animated videos with online free tool Animatron. This is a great tool to learn how animation software works. I love that you can jump right into Animatron and begin creating! There is a learning curve with Animatron but many visual tutorials to give the user great explanations on how Animatron works. I envision using this tool as a Genius hour option with my students.
Love these oldie but goodie Instructional Videos on how to make an instant book!
Use them as Travel Journals, Elements & Principals learning booklets, Sketching progressions, and any other type of creative endeavors that you or your students might want to document visually.

Within my classroom, I envision Brief.ly being incorporated within digital stories, portfolios, webpages, informational digital reports, Infographics and student blogs. How about App smashing a brief.ly link into Prezi, Thinglink or in a Remind text attachment? Endless possibilities!
