Adobe has recently released a great app that we can all use for digital storytelling: Adobe Voice (opens in new tab), a stunning app to create animated videos.
It’s a very user friendly app that we can use in all grades. You can upload your pictures, or use some pictures from the Adobe gallery on different slides. Then, you record your voice over each slide. As you can listen to yourself on each slide, if you would like to rerecord your voice, it’s the easiest thing to do. Just click on the record button. When you are done, you can preview your video, and then you can share it on different social media tools; also send it in an email.
This app is great for telling stories, doing presentations, creating advertisements or book trailers. Students can upload their own pictures and create their own stories with their own voices. Teachers can put the pictures of a field trip in a minute and create a sideshow to share it with parents.
This app is free and I think it’s been one of the best apps that I have ever used with my kids.
