Sparking Inquiry with Clips

The best part of working with younger friends as an educator are ALL THEIR QUESTIONS! When the pandemic hit I was stuck, trying to figure out how to bring that sense of wonder and spark to create and play to an online environment. In the Library Learning Commons we would have areas around the space to explore. How could I bring that online especially when many kids would engage asynchronously with the work?

In came CLIPS to the rescue! The possibility to bring the question to life with voiceover, zoom in on images, draw attention with stickers and end with a question on a poster was just what I needed.

Can you spot all the features above in my first clip?
