Everyone Student Can Make Videos

A few years ago students needed cameras and access to computers to make videos. Now with the iPad, every student can film and edit their videos anytime, anywhere.

Have a look at our iMovie App for iOS page in EUSD iPad Tutorials. There you and your students will find many helpful links to capabilities like iMovie’s incredible new green screen.

PLEASE NOTE, at the bottom of the page, the eBook from Apple: Everyone Can Create Video. With Apple ID’s students can now download eBooks to their iPads.

If you have ever felt shy about teaching editing in iMovie, your worries are over. This eBook offers step-by-step instructions, including practice clips to download. Students can do the activities independently, or you can download the Anyone can Create Teacher's Guide (available in upper and early learner versions). 

[NOTE: The only activity I recommend that you skip is the iMovie Trailers; It’s fine if you are advertising a bake sale, but very limiting for individual student creative expression.]

Everyone Can Create Video also cover the Clips app, which enables dynamic video production, but is much easier to use than iMovie. (Clips for iOS - EUSD)

As always, if you need assistance, contact anyone on the Tech TOSA Team. (Our Calendars)

Project LIVE will offer workshops throughout the year open to all teachers.  

Individual support also available, contact Todd  Mattox, tmattox@eusd.org

New Stuff:
iPad iMovie has Green Screen with masking.

This Year EYMF will offer a Animation Category
