Superbowl 2010 had a google commercial that told a story using search terms set to music. Â It went over so well that Google made the Google Search Story Video Creator. Â The process is very easy, there are several tutorials that do a great job explaining the process.
I made two search story videos. Â The first is about the Pepsi Refresh Challenge that community members in Billings, Montana are working to win. Â It is called “Swords Park for Kids”. Â Part of the project is a restoration project and part will become a bike trail (Bike Net). Â This is a very historic area complete with buffalo jump, wagon trails, and Yellowstone Kelly’s Grave.
The second video is for my classroom aboutÂ Rosa Parks. I am using it to introduce biographies as a genre. Â I see many ways to have students use this video story format in the classroom. I can see using with a form of found poetry.
These are my very first video creations ever. Â They were easy and lots of fun to create. Â I hope you try it. Â I still haven’t figured out how to embed the video in a gather post though. Â I read the instructions, but the code just disappears.
