Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

ANIMOTO in Education!

I have my own personal Animoto account that I love. But I also use Animoto for school. As a teacher in K-5, I use it to make videosforthe school, my class website, and will be teaching my technology team how to use it (grades 3-5). Under supervision, it's a wonderful video making tool and very simple to use. Great for students.
