This is an end of year video I made for the fourth grade using Animoto.com. I bought a subscription for $30 for the year and have made several school (field trips, field day) and personal videos. I've created links on my website and you can easily embedd codes (like I did above). You can also download your videos and purchase a high resolution copy. This year I learned how to "stitch" together several songs, using movie maker and a converter (but apparently you can use audacity as well...a free download) so the program can take more pictures in it (I used just over 220 in the video above...it can't take more then 10 minutes of music and mine above clocked in at 9 min. 30 seconds).
At one time educators could get a free account so if you are interested you might want to check that out. I decided not to go that route since I knew I was going to be making a fair share of personal videos and the cost was relatively inexpensive.
These are great to show at open houses, awards ceremonies, graduation, etc.
While this is not strictly a post about "notebooking" I do have a lot of notebooking pictures in the video :)
