Teachers and Students as Media Creators

Making videos doesn’t have to be a full on production with expensive equipment, glaring hot lights and confusing editing suites. Turning your classroom into a video studio can be as easy as filming on a mobile device (phone or iPad) editing on it, and then uploading to YouTube. Technology now allows us to do all this on one device. You don’t need to be an expert film maker or editor to make impactful videos. Videos capture student learning and allows the audience, whether it be the teacher, parents or other students, to access and assess this learning. This workshop is for all skill levels and will enable teachers to immediately bring new skills back to the classroom.

Video production is an easy and powerful way of sharing student learning. It takes the understanding of concepts to the next level and shares it with an unlimited audience. Empowering students to create and share their videos gives them a huge sense accomplishment. It allows them to take ownership of their learning while giving them deeper understanding. Participants are encouraged to bring their own devices with the app “Green Screen by Do Ink” installed and storage capacity to film. No experience is necessary, there will plenty of support provided. This workshop will be very hands on and lots of fun.

In this workshop, attendees will learn:

  • The steps involved to create a well developed video including scripts, storyboards and editing.
  • How to integrate video production into units.
  • How to set up a green screen and chroma key backgrounds using Green Screen by Do Ink on an iPad.
  • Editing using iMovie on the iPads.
  • How to create a YouTube channel and upload videos.
