Looked around Animoto and Word Sift: Really liked Word Sift- thoght it was neat how it could turn some phrases into cartoons/images, and when inputting the single word debate, it came up with some great stuff. It could lead to everything from a discussion starter in class to a potential T-Shirt design for the debate team! Thats soemthing we are always debating over, no pun intended.
Animoto seemes pretty neat, but I dont take many pics and debeat is not a very visual medium, but I could see where some speech students might want to use this to make some of their presentations more memorable, esp. when they want to combine still photos and video.
We will see!
