Parents need to know that Animoto Video Maker is an easy-to-use slideshow creation tool that connects to the Animoto website. Teens can create 30-second video slideshows with the option to download their creations or share via email, text message, and social media networks. Longer and HD slideshows are available with paid in-app upgrades and subscriptions. Animoto stores all the videos users create within the app and on users' auto-generated account page on the Animoto website. User pages at the Animoto website are private and only accessible if the user shares a video's URL. Animoto requires users to be 13 or older.
Kids can learn how to create video slideshows by organizing media for creative, digital storytelling. The app has an on-screen guide that helps teens follow sequential instructions and learn file management. Animoto also allows teens to exercise creativity and decision-making skills, as well as to hone the art of brevity (text fields have character limits). The free version of Animoto Video Maker is limiting, but with a paid upgrade, the app is a solid media-creation tool that can support teens' learning goals.
