A new video joins the Classroom 3-Minute Problem Solver Series: How to Build an Attention Getter Video

One of the single biggest challenges we face, as teachers, every day in the classroom is coming up with ways to keep our students interested, intrigued, and involved in lessons and activities.  But that's precisely where a cleverly created attention getter video might come in.

Have you tried making an attention getter video? If not, let our presenter Kim Munoz show you how to do just that in under three minutes using Animoto.

With this free app, you can create as many 30-second videos as you want.

You provide the photos, you pick the song, and we'll add the magic.” You can create super attention-getters and Animoto has some great sound bites and videos in their library that you can use as stand-alone elements or they can complement video and audio pieces that you've made.

Best of all, Animoto makes creating an attention getter as easy as the proverbial pie. You start off by choosing a style of video that you want, and a song. Then you customize it with other elements with one or all of photos, videos, and text. As a third step, you publish your video. Most teachers find that they can complete an Animoto attention getter in one class period. Bam! This baby is a lot of fun, and I've started using it for some home and work projects as well.
