Have you ever heard of Animoto? Animoto.com is a Web 2.0 tool that allows you to create a video from your personal photographs and video clips. You get to choose a background theme and a song (over 600 song choices), then you upload your photos and/or video clips, and Animoto does all of the editing and producing for you.
This is a free tool, and educators even have free access to the Plus version which typically costs $30 per year. The free upgrade allows you to create videos that are as long as the background song, instead of only 30-second videos. It also allows you to download your videos to your computer and burn them to a DVD.
Feel free to explore Animoto on your own. I will be back soon to post a sample video that I have created.
