Increased Apptitude: VixT

 

Video Mashups are fun.  You see them ubiquitously strewn throughout social media spaces.  They make us laugh.  They make us think.  They make us want to create one.  Why not use them in your classroom for instructional purposes? VixT allows you to do just that easily on your iOS or Android device.

Having students create video mash up poems, exit tickets, or answers to questions could add a little extra spice to lessons with minimal investment.
