It's almost never the learning tool that's the distraction, whether it's a pen and paper or an iPad or laptop... It's about structuring and creating a learning environment and activity which engages the learner and provides an opportunity for Fri and rich learning.

Just a reminder - MovieMaker is a free bit of software from Microsoft (thanks Microsoft!), but it does have limits. One of those limits is that it doesn't have layers. This means that we can't do overlays, like having a picture over the top of the video, rather than replacing it completely. I use Techsmith's Camtasia, which is a paid for application. It gives a heap more features too.
Free ones:
WeVideo (limited in Free mode) ( - haven't used it, but is a web based tool which provides a few interfaces depeding upon your skill levels. Supports layers.
Lightworks (free version): very feature rich tool. Supports layers and heaps more (
VSDC: ( - supports layers. Never used it, hadn't heard of it before today.

Look for editors that support layers.
