Book trailers are like movie trailers, but for books. Students read books, then create a video (or even just photos using Animoto) in movie trailer-style to get other students to read that book (persuasion).
Then, once the video is on Animoto or Schooltube.com, students use a free QR code generator to print a QR code that links directly to that trailer. They tape the QR code to the inside jacket of the book (if in the library or teacher's room) where other students can use iPod touch, iPad, Android devices, etc. to view the trailers. Our kids love these! Books with QR codes are indicated by a "BT" label on the spine.
This will be a fully guided tour from start to finish from a student's perspective. We will make a book trailer, upload the video, make a QR code, and see what the finished product looks like.
