We're always looking for fun, engaging, and interesting ways for students to document and share their learning. I recently learned about Apple Clips from a colleague at my school who has her students use it in her Physics class.
Apple Clips is a great creation tool for the iPhone and iPad. You can create videos that can include text, special effects, graphics, backgrounds, labels, stickers, emojis, and music.
One of my favorite features of Clips is Live Titles. It's like having closed caption built into your video. As you talk in your video, Clips will automatically capture and convert your voice into text. You can have that text placed anywhere on your screen. It works really well as long as you speak clearly and at an average pace.
For your next project or class assignment, challenge your students to demonstrate their learning and understanding by creating a quick 60 second video with Apple Clips. You'll be amazed and pleasantly surprised at how creative they'll get with their videos!
