Learn to shoot, edit, and publish a video on an iPad in a fraction of the time this process takes with a laptop computer and “traditional” video gear! Flash-based video camcorders on mobile computing devices (like the iPad) can empower learners to create and publish “quick edit” videos. In this session we will discuss example iPad videos, explore different apps for quick-edit videography, and learn to to successfully facilitate student-created iPad videos. We’ll also learn about options for puppet videography with iPads, including actual finger puppets as well as virtual puppets using apps like Puppet Pals. Prepare to have fun and unleash a wealth of creative ideas on your students during and following this workshop!
This is an audio recording of the second of seven classes taught by Dr. Wesley Fryer on “Mapping Media to the Common Core: Vol 2.” This session focused on “Quick Edit Videos,” and is the first of two parts. The first half of this class 1.5 hour class focused on digital portfolios and is not included in this recording. Referenced links and resources are included in this Google Doc. Dr. Fryer is using ideas on quick edit videography shared in this class in the chapter on “Quick Edit Videos” for volume two (the next book and ebook) in his Mapping Media series. Additional related links, examples, and resources are available on the “Quick Edit Videos” page of Mapping Media to the Common Core.
This is an audio recording of Dr. Wesley Fryer’s presentation, Digital Literacy Framework for Common Core, on August 28, 2013, for teachers in Wells-Ogunquit Community School District. Access presentation slides (including links to referenced videos) on SlideShare. (Be SURE, if you have not already, to watch the referenced Google Search Story “Cheryl and Morgan: Learning Independence,” which is about teachers, students and parents in Wells, Maine.) The session description was: To be digitally literate, teachers as well as students need to be able to create and share online a variety of different multimedia products. These media products can be “mapped” to your curriculum, and if you’re in a Common Core state in the United States, to the Common Core State Standards. Interactive Writing, Narrated Art, 5 Photo Stories, Narrated Slideshows / Screencasts, Quick Edit Videos, and eBooks are a few of the media products learners should be able to create and safely share online. In this session, we’ll view different examples of student media products and learn about tools and strategies for helping teachers become digitally literate as “media mappers.” We’ll also explore how librarians and instructional coaches can use the “Mapping Media to the Curriculum” website as a roadmap to help teachers and students create media products as assignments for class and as artifacts in digital portfolios.
