Green Screen Technology at Naper School

This month, our 4th grade PI classroom utilized our green screen using the Do Ink green screen iPad app to dynamically present poetry. Green screens allow people to create video with a customizable background which can include a nearly infinite amount of other visual media. This technology is used widely across many fields including newscasting, motion picture , and video game industries. It is a very useful technology that allows our students to create individualized content and learn new software applications. Watch two great examples of the 4th grade PI's poetry project.
