Greenscreen icon
Green Screen by Do Ink
This paid app allows students an easy interface for their green screen video-making project. At $2.99, the features of this app are totally worth it! Stock photos and photo upload are available. (K+, with supervision)

iOS only

Yakit Kids
Teachers sometimes need an easy assessment. Look no further. Take a picture. Make it talk. Done. Great resource! (K+, with supervision)

iOS only

Very similar to Windows Movie Maker, iMovie has a sleek interface that allows for layering, recording narration, adding photos, videos, and music, as well as transitions.  (Grade 4+)

Mac and iOS

WeVideo, available on all platforms and especially compatible with Chrome, offers users a standard video editor that boasts simple photo and video import and seamless green screen integration. (K+, with teacher supervision)

iOS, Android, online

Teachers can create quick assignments, classroom tasks or authentic assessments using this app and website. Students can receive real time feedback on their work while being monitored by the teacher. (Grade 4+)

All platforms

Liked Adobe Spark storytelling? Try using Adoble Spark Video. It has a simple interface and can create videos in mere minutes! Available online and on iOS (Grade 3+)
A fully-stocked video editing tool, this paid app is an established resourcecomprehensive (Grade 3+)
Masquerade is an app that allows users to add filters to their selfies in order to take pictures and record video. Lots of fun with this one! (Supervised use recommended)

iOS and Android

This website offers a number of free use stock images by category and custom search.
This website offers free downloadable tunes and sound effects, with a couple of catches. First, to apply for free music as an educational institution, you must submit an application. The other catch – you have to provide a link “shout-out” on your school’s webpage. Find the instructions for that here. After that’s done, the music is free for your use!
This website offers hundreds of sound effects from text alerts to dogs barking to musical instruments. Beware though, it also includes sounds that might be too funny for students to handle such as this one.
In addition to having an awesome name, this resource offers activities designed for preschool through fifth grade students. There are a number of free printables, games, lesson ideas, videos, and more available. The site also offers a paid version with more resources.
An add-on in Chrome, this extension allows you to easily consolidate and share your list of tabs. Need a list of research sites for students? Open your tabs and use the extension to create a URL to share!
Need some help navigating copyright? This site breaks it down simply.
Digital Citizenship Integration – What is copyright anyway? Watch this video to get some answers!
