Wideo.co also offers brief, easy to understand tutorial videos to get started using the application quickly and effectively.
Digital storytelling in K-12 settings, higher education and adult learning can be created using this educational technology tool. Middle school students through adult learners can typically easily navigate through the creation of a digital story via Wideo.co. after watching tutorials. However, students in K-5 settings will require more scaffolding and could benefit from creating a teacher led collaborative digital story for the class to get acclimated to using its features. Then, scaffolding can be implemented to differentiate the independent or group use of Wideo.co based on students’ comfort levels. Wideo.co is a great option to enhance technology integration into a variety of instructional settings.
