During second semester, the middle school students used the Apple Clips app to builld book trailers based on fiction books. Students were challenged to use Clips PLUS at least one other app to give an overview of their book. Here are some examples of the students’ work:
Jake used the Tellagami app to share about The Giver. (Note: Tellagami currently will not work with iOS 11.) He didn’t want to use his voice, so he used the text voice feature to create his narration. Also, note the effective way he used the black and white filters in Clips which matched the plot in the book.
Kennedy used the Toca City and Toca School apps to created cartoon clips for her video about the book Wonder. Her use of labels within the Clips app adds lots of detail and information to her story.
Nick used Minecraft to design backgrounds, Pickayou to make his characters, and then built the video pieces in Puppet Pals. Then he edited all of that together in Clips, adding titles, annotaion, and music. I was very impressed with the complex and detailed workflow that he used for this project!
Ryan combined copyright friendly photos with drawings that he made using Tayasui Sketches to make the images to illustrate Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
We hope these examples give you some inspiration on how you can app smash Clips with other apps for creative digital storytelling!
