Powtoon for Education

Powtoon for Education – Create animated presentations that are engaging and professional looking! This tool is great for the flipped classroom and supports UDL – multiple means of representation and expression. This tool is easy to use and contains hundreds of elements to use in creating your project. Select from a variety of templates, or start from scratch. Your presentation can be published as video or a slideshow. The free version allows you to publish to the web and share your project by using a link or by using embed code added to your blog, Edmodo group, or website. Both the free and the paid versions are approved for use. The paid version allows teachers to buy licenses for students, but occasionally, PowToon may offer free licenses for teachers. Be sure you are signing up for the EDU version. Students must be 13 or older to have an account, and parent permission is required for students 13- 18.
