Melissa Marshall's curator insight, September 8, 11:42 PM

An app-smash is the use of more than one app to create a product - so for instance, using clips from Explain Everything and Tellagami within an iMovie. It is very effective and gets students thinking about making creative content (PLEASE no more default iMovie templates!)

Tip: Use Keynote to make engaging text-slides to import into iMovie as images. This way, you can customise more fully and have more freedom over the layout.
