Multi-media Videos on Your iPad!

resources for using iPads to create videos

Why Video?

Video can be a powerful tool in the classroom, especially when the videos can be accessed 24/7 by students. Video is a learning delivery system that appeals to both auditory and visual learners, and students have the option to pause and re-watch videos to access information as many times as they want or need. Teacher-created videos don't have to be complex, highly-edited productions to be effective tools for student learning.


Project Innovate iPads are an efficient way to capture, edit, and upload short instructional videos. There are a number of easy-to-use tools to create professional videos and image slideshows. The apps we will explore today are:

iMovie

Flipagram

Adobe Spark

Tips for Quality Videos

1. Make sure to turn your iPad in the horizontal/landscape orientation when recording video.

2. Try to speak clearly close to the iPad microphone.

3. When possible, record video in a space with little or no background noise.

4. Keep instructional videos to 5 minutes. This is easier to upload and share, and students focus better on shorter chunks of one-way instruction.

So, You've Made a Video. Now, How Do You Share it?

Your district Google account (the g.birdvilleschools.net one) comes with a Youtube channel. Yay! When you sign into Youtube, choose to sign in with your district Google account and it is set up.

STEPS FOR SHARING:


  1. If you do not already have the YouTube app installed on your iPad, you should do so now. Click here to go to YouTube app download.
  2. After YouTube installs, go to your video project and tap the SHARE SQUARE (that icon that looks like a box with an arrow coming straight out of the top.)
  3. Choose the red YouTube icon and then give the upload a title and description. Consider including the objective or topic in the title. It will make sorting easier later when you start uploading more videos.
  4. It may take a minute or two to upload into YouTube depending on your wi-fi connection.
  5. Once it is uploaded, you can simply copy the URL and paste it on your web-page or anywhere that you can share it with your students. Teachers who use REMIND, can paste a video link for students in REMIND messages. Homework help? Test reviews? Flipped lessons?

Classroom Uses

iMovie:


  • Take photos of student work and use iMovie to edit them into a simple video that can be shared.
  • Take short instructional videos for your students for flipped learning.
  • Use a Justand (stand for recording downward) to record videos of yourself working problems and taking notes.


Flipagram:


  • Take photos of each student project and make a Flipagram of an entire class period. Then, all class periods can view the student projects.
  • Also, Flipagrams are much more portable to take home for grading than large poster or paper projects.


Adobe Spark


  • Use photos and short text to create visually appealing short presentations.
  • Take photos of different models with directions for students.
  • Templates make creation quick and professional looking.
