What and Why?
Now, why was this up in the library and what does it have to do with education? We are always looking for fun ways for students to share their learning and integrate technology into the curriculum. Rather than simply write a report or make a poster about something they've learned, the green screen allows students to be transformed to new places, share their ideas, or simply have fun talking about a favorite book. So far, the green screen has been used with kindergarten students all the way up to 4th graders. Below are some of the projects involving our green screen and Ixonia students.
How We Did It
For the other videos, everything was done on an iPad. The app, Green Screen by Do Ink, was used. This $2.99 app is very easy to use and allows students to create individual videos by adding their own images or video as the backdrop. Only images were used so far, but students can record themselves with a video clip playing in the background. Perhaps, that's something students will choose to do in the future. The first grade book recommendation videos were completed as individual videos and combined into a longer video using the free iMovie app on the iPad.
