Book Trailers as Book Reviews. Techie Site of the Week!

Along with using Collaborize Classroom in my book club,  I am hoping to encourage my book club students to share book reviews as trailers using IMovie or Windows.  Having made my first iMovie trailer a while back to advertise my own book club, I was amazed at what a fantastic learning experience it is being your own movie producer!  Of course I needed a ton of help from my son who knows IMovie backwards!  What a great way to get your students excited about sharing their book review by making a video:)  SOOOO 21 century!

  1. You put so much great content in your blog posts Pippa...I am sure it will be a great resource for years to come! Don't be discouraged when people don't comment...you never know who is reading and benefitting.

    Thank you for encouraging Austin on his recent baptism...how wonderful it is to belong to the LORD...that's all that truly matters at the end of the day!

    Many blessings to you!
