What you should know:
Forget dioramas; enter the 21st century with this high-tech app, which allows little techies to create movies or tell a story through video. On-screen modeling is becoming an important part of curriculum helping children learn appropriate social skills, and this extremely intuitive app makes movie-making a cinch.
While not inherently academic, this app can be used as a tool to manipulate videos, photos, speech and music to create anything from a school presentation to a creative film. As the Common Core Standards emphasize the importance of using multimedia when expressing ideas, this app is the perfect complement to digital idea exploration. For children who struggle with writing, filmmaking can be helpful to bridge the gap between self-expression and the written word. Budding Spielbergs can email finished projects to parents or teachers for review.
In today's wired world, a basic understanding of technology is critical, and this app is an important tool to help kids begin the process. The lite version offers the chance to make a 10-shot film, while a subscription offers much richer features for a pretty steep price tag.
