Having students create their own videos for school projects is a great way to demonstrate how creative they can be. In ELA classes at Brenham JH, students were asked to create campaign ads as they "ran" for election for several positions such as Mayor, County Judge, Governor, etc.
In a very clever campaign ad, one student, Avery, made great use of Hype Type in her video.
Hype Type is an app that lets you design motion typography and incorporates into your videos. Open a video you want to use, double tap to add text to your screen, and choose the font style and color. A simple, yet effective tool that you or your students can use on their phones.
