Wow. That was an impressive video and definitely representative of the expression, "a picture is worth a thousand words!"

Impressive.

Eric,

Thanks for the kudos, but my "talent" lay in taking and selecting the photos used; you too can be "impressive" if you sign up for a free account at animoto (30-second clips are free; longer "films" requirement payment of a fee).

I hope to show this to my students on the first day of class (network willing!). Educational applications might include themed clips like "My Favorite Things", "School Rules", "A Day in My Life", etc.

Ahhh...I see.

You shouldn't have told me. Now I think you're a mere mortal like the rest of us!

Definitely an excellent use of videos in the classroom.

Eric,

Although it would be nice to be viewed as "impressive", librarians love to find and share information. We are, after all, goddesses in our own right!
