In this lesson we reviewed the 2008 ISTE Standards for Teachers. Standard 3 suggests, “Teachers exhibit knowledge, skills, and work processes representative of an innovative professional in a global and digital society”. We are expected to model the use of technology in the classroom. Create a free video using the Animoto software (animoto.com). The software is rather user friendly, but if you are having any issues there are a number of “how to” video available on YouTube to walk you through the process. Just go to YouTube.com and search “How to use Animoto”.

Your assignment should include the following elements:
