WeVideo: Digital Storytelling

WeVideo in the Classroom

WeVideo is a powerful movie maker application that can be used for an endless number of projects.  Salem classroom teachers have used it for stop-motion, project presentations, and creative storytelling.

To utilize WeVideo in your classroom, see your school librarian (Rachel or Lori) and reserve license seats for your project.  If you would like assistance with planning, student work in the classroom, or a Google Classroom connection, contact Eric or Amy to schedule time.
