Quick GIFs from YouTube

I has hanging on Teacher TikTok and saw this idea from @emily_karst. My head nearly exploded! I love when I see new things for the first time!!!

This quickly creates gifs from youtube videos.

Step 1

(assuming you already have your video selected)

Type GIF before the word youtube.

Step 2

Press enter and a new website will open and your video will load.

Isn’t the website color palette sooo cute!

Step 3

Select the clip you want as the gif by dragging the box at the bottom. You can preview it and move it again if it’s not what you wanted.

Step 4

Click Trim Video in the top right corner.

Now you can add text, graphics, or any of the adjustments.

Step 5

Click create gif in the top right corner.

You can add tags etc if you want to. I love that you can include sound.

Click next.

Step 6

Share it!

You have many options to choose from including download.

GIF – Just Fold It In

And there you have it! Why did I pick this GIF? This is how I feel when I’m asked to implement something new and I ask for clarification. Reflecting on this, I try to be aware when I teach so I don’t tell them to just FOLD IT IN. LOL

This is more fun and less educational but we need fun sometimes!!!
