We learned a lot of new skills in Technology class this year.
In this project, we learned how to use Movie Maker and Photo Story 3. We learned how to go on Google Earth and travel to faraway places while staying in our classroom. We learned how to take screenshots and use them in our presentations. We learned how to make music on UJAM.com and Photo Story 3. We recorded our voices and learned how to put it in our movie.
We also learned how to type in step by step directions for you! Enjoy our tutorial of how to travel on Google Earth.
. We were learning about ways to use the app,Snapguide, to create a tutorial. Our idea was to show people how to use a digital camera. This tutorial will show you step by step basics of using a digital camera. We used the iPad to take pictures of each step. Next, we added captions to match the steps. We hope our tutorial will help people learn how to use a digital camera in the future.
Mrs. Moore went to an awesome education conference this past weekend called, EdCamp Detroit. It was full of amazing Michigan educators who love helping students learn! We had many great conversations and shared a whole bunch of cool ideas. When I told Mr. Medvinsky we were creating How-To videos, he shared a cool app with me called,SnapGuide. Guess what? I loved it and couldn’t wait to share it in class!
We jumped right in and made our first guide. Take a look at what our 1st graders created. Each photo is captioned and there are even videos at the end.
Our classes are talking about making “How-To” videos.
How-To Videos would give step by step directions for how to complete a task. The younger Techie Kids are thinking about time order words such as First, Next, and Last. They are also practicing following directions.
* The older Techie Kids are considering storyboarding and how to create videos using tools like Photo Story 3 and Windows Movie Maker. Both of these tools are Free.
* Here are our first 2 attempts at making a plan and filming our idea.
Our first video features Lauren as she shows us how-to draw a cartoon panda.
Next, we would like to share how-to find the area of a right triangle.
We are hoping to share more how-to videos soon. Thanks for watching!
What other how-to videos should we create next?
What tips or strategies could you share with us about making a quality video?
Do you have any storyboarding websites that you would recommend?
