Every year we watch the awards of fantastic movies at Hollywood shows, awarded for the richness of stories and masterful acting performances. In fact, anyone can become a producer and make a video, thanks to some powerful mobile apps. With these video tools, you or your children can make videos and edit your work to make professional-quality videos using iOS devices (iPad and iPhone) or Android tablets.
The best thing about this easy-to-use technology is that students can practice important language skills by creating art, writing a story, planning an interesting story, and including entertaining details as they prepare to make a video.

It gives students the opportunity to express themselves in storytelling while completing tasks set at school.
