  1. Another create tool to add to our creativity toolbox. I can see many uses for Animoto. Our Shepard juniors plan and execute community service projects. Animoto would be a great way for the students to create their presentation on their project. I can use Animoto to create our informational presentation for Shepard Academy. Or course, it provides lots of opportunities for student projects and a year-in-review for our class.
