MS Students using iMovie to creatively demonstrate their learning
Amazing things are happening as the 7th grade team is beginning to work on their videos! They are imagining possibilities and finding very creative ways to make them happen. Here are two examples:
One group working on their weather forecast uses the Smart Board as their weather map. They took several takes and revised with "real world" ideas including the host "fake chat" at the end of the segment
Another group worked with an app called Green Screen. They are finding maps, revising a script and coordinating actions so they can film a realistic weather forecast for Old Forge.
In addition, last month Ms. Peluso created a fabulous project for her 8th grade ELA students that was high up on the DOK and SAMR scales! She used the website photos for class, the iMovie app, google classroom, the engage ny modules, and other resources to make this project possible.
