Rather than starting with a blank timeline, templates provide the option to work from a pre-made foundation that guides students and teachers through creating a video for a lesson or project. It provides a framework for projects with WeVideo, without limiting creativity and potential for demonstrating learning.
Memes are great to explain quick topics and illustrate concepts in a way that is fun and accessible. They usually involve an image of a video with text overlaid and can be super funny. You can also export a meme as a GIF.
We’ve seen that teachers create GIFs because/for…
- It’s easy to embed in email and documents
- It connects visuals next to the words (instead of having to click to watch a video)
- attach to assessments as feedback
- short screen capture tutorials
- greeting cards
- to demonstrate skills
- capture the interest of students and help them remember concepts.
- short ‘how to’s’ when reminding students how to do a task.
Teachers have students create GIFs for…
- use in digital infographics and documents
- Blogs and assignments
- exit tickets
- visualize a quote or message as a GIF with words and images.
- creation mode for quick assignments i.e. six word story or ticket out the door
- And much more!
Here are a few examples of Memes and GIFs from our community on Twitter.
