iMovie in School

Creating Educational Movies

Taking education to the next step with iMovie!

The great thing about being a teacher is finding new and exciting ways to teach our students! Having students work on movie projects to present research, or presenting a movie to your students about the new topic being introduced can be more intriguing and interactive learning than you think! Creating your own movies for your students, parents, colleagues, and for your self is the best thing that can happen for a teacher living in a fast growing technology based world.

You just need an idea and some imagination! Students don't have access at home? Let them work on their projects in class or at the library.
