Leveling Up in Macramé with WeVideo Magic

Hey there, fellow educators and learners! Today, we’re diving into the world of Macramé and the editing tool WeVideo. This is a video editing platform I found on the recommended list for this class. Hold onto your hats because we’ve got some pros, some cons, and a whole lot of fun facts to uncover about this tool.


  • User-Friendly Interface: This tool offers a friendly platform that makes it easy for both beginners and seasoned pros to video edit with relative ease. Everything is labeled well, easy to find and has a variety of options for all users.
  • Seamless Classroom Integration: Specifically for educators, this tool provides the ability for student/educator creativity, allowing you to engage with the SAMR model through basic video projects and collaborative storytelling.


  • Not-So-Free Fun….: Here’s the kicker….while the basic controls are free, most templates and advanced features come with a price tag. Yep, you read that right. If you’re hoping for a plethora of freebies, you might have to rethink your strategy.
  • Continuous glitching: Unfortunately during my editing experience, I struggled with an extreme amount of glitches, which did not allow me to explore the tool to the extent I wish I could. Due to this, my video was forced to be quite simple.

Educators, Are You Ready for the SAMR Adventure?

For educators seeking to integrate WeVideo into their classroom, I do believe the platform offers a compelling approach for student engagement, allowing them to explore the SAMR model. But beware, my fellow educators, for the path to full creative freedom may require navigating through a forest of premium features.

Here are a few ways to add this video editing platform into your educational adventures:

  • Creative Storytelling Opportunities: Encourage students to embark on creative storytelling journeys with WeVideo. The platform offers students the ability to bring their stories to life through video projects.
  • Collaborative Creations: Unite your students in collaborative video projects.
  • Digital Presentations and Projects: Elevate traditional presentations by allowing students to create dynamic digital presentations using WeVideo.

Now for my favorite part…..

Ah, the art of macramé – Join me as I take you through this week’s personal experience of creating a macramé bottle holder before I dove into the world of WeVideo to capture this journey.

Another enchanting week has passed in my macramé odyssey, and I am thrilled to share the latest chapter in my knotty adventures. This time, I ventured to create a macramé bottle holder, aiming to level up from my previous projects and infuse a touch of creativity into my space.

Before diving into this endeavor, I prepared my creative space (as usual), ensuring that the cords were securely fastened to a stable anchor, much like my previous projects. As I progressed into this next project, I encountered a delightful blend of lessons and unexpected surprises. This time every challenge I encountered was measurement related…. Next week I think I am going to try a measuring app to see if that will be more accurate. Despite my measurement twists and turns, the cords turned into a whimsical bottle holder and filled me with a profound sense of accomplishment. Testing my creation with an empty bottle, I reveled in the satisfaction of crafting something different!

A Personal and Whimsical WeVideo Adventure
Crafting a macramé bottle holder became more than a creative task: it became a personal expression in the form of a magical video journey. WeVideo, with its enchanting features, transformed my personal experience into a visual tale, capturing the artistry and tranquility of my macramé.

Here’s to another week of crafting and creative discoveries in the art of macramé! Until we meet again, may your own creative endeavors be filled with joy, and inspiration..

Happy crafting!

    Hey Kendra,
    I enjoyed reading your post for this week, it was very informative and allowed my understanding of macrame to go a little bit farther.
    My best friend actually has her own macrame business so I am intrigued with your learning project!
    Overall, thanks for sharing and I can’t wait to hear more!

    I was originally going to do macrame for mine as well after some inspiration from a teacher at work. Watching your video I am wishing I had stuck to that but you have inspired me to learn over the summer! Love the feedback on the video platform as well as I can see students being easily frustrated with glitchy programs, especially with spotty school Wi-Fi.
