The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Kids can learn the basics of photo and video, as well as simple storytelling concepts. Making animations can be engaging for kids and gives them the platform to tell any story through their own words. As a basic photo and video tool, Videolicious makes it easy to introduce kids to concepts such as composition, animation, and building a series. Beyond that the tools may simply be an introduction to processes that students will have to explore more deeply elsewhere. That being said, kids can create animations, save them to a gallery, and share their work with others -- an empowering experience for anyone.

Ease of Play

The tools are fairly easy to use, but the overall design may be a bit confusing for some kids. In-app support just might provide most of the answers to your questions.

What's it about?

VIDEOLICIOUS is a video-creation tool. Kids select photos from their library or snap photos within the app. A basic editing feature allows kids to position their photos to fit within the landscape mode. In the sequence of uploads, kids are prompted to record a video. Although a bit unclear, an option allows users to opt out of recording video and stick with a simple photo montage. Audio can be recorded to provide context to the images as they scroll across the screen, or kids can choose from an available library of music within the app. After completing a video, users have the option to share it through email, Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter.

Is it any good?

Videolicious can be used to create digital storytelling projects or to encourage kids to showcase their work. Kids likely will dive right in and have no trouble finding ways to get creative with this app. Because of this, Videolicious might be best-suited for independent exploration. Multiple-user log-in makes it easier to share one device among kids.

Talk to your kids about ...
