Student Created Content is an Exciting and Inspiring Learning Tool that Teaches Many Skills - EmergingEdTech

Student Created Content is an Exciting and Inspiring Learning Tool that Teaches Many Skills - EmergingEdTech | AC Library News | Scoop.it

"This last Friday and Saturday at the Teaching and Learning with the iPad Conference, I had the distinct pleasure of watching students at different grade levels present multiple types of media that they created. It was one of the most enjoyable and inspiring activities that I have had the pleasure of experiencing in my time as a professional working in the field of education.

 

On Friday I watched professional quality newscasts, and short movies, created by Franklin Academy high school students. Several of these well spoken students demonstrate some of the equipment and tools that they used to create this content in this video. That same day I also thoroughly enjoyed having several elementary school students from Fuquay Varina Elementary School play movies they made in iMovie, and explain how they created them (here’s one of these movies, from students Sekou, Camren, and Colin).

 

On Saturday, Anthony DeLaura gave this great session on “Unleashing Creativity with iBooks Author”, and during this presentation, he showed this wonderful YouTube video:"

Murray has pointed out some of the possibilities of iBook Author for us as teachers but it could provide opportunities for students as well. However, students have Book Creator which is a great starting point for creating multimedia books with video, pictures, audio and text.  This article shows us some possibilities with our students as authors.

Millennials Will Soon Rule The World: But How Will They Lead?

Millennials Will Soon Rule The World: But How Will They Lead? | AC Library News | Scoop.it
In the last few years there has been a lot of research on Millennials and how they're different. But a new topic has now come up in many of my conversations with HR and business executives: What is their leadership style and how will they lead?

Millenials AKA Gen Y or Generation Me. I have worked with some really switched on Millenials who have really progressed their careers at quite a rapid rate. In spite of the stereotypes and disparaging remarks about their supposed selfishness I think we will be in good hands.

100+ STEM iPad Apps For Learning - TeachThought

100+ STEM iPad Apps For Learning - TeachThought | AC Library News | Scoop.it

"STEM education is “an interdisciplinary approach to learning where rigorous academic concepts are coupled with real-world lessons as students apply Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics in contexts that make connections between school, community, work, and the global enterprise enabling the development of STEM literacy and with it the ability to compete in the new economy. (Tsupros, Kohler, & Hallinen, 2009)

 

Not coincidentally, several other trends in learning–from mobile learning and tablets in the classroom, to personalized learning and adaptive learning apps–are all at least somewhat connected to STEM education, which makes the following collection of STEM iPad apps for learning from Listly user Randy Yerrick helpful."

You need to have some basic understanding of iMovie and here's some info that might help.  Remember though, the students will often know more and can work it out for themselves, you don't have to be the expert.  You need to plan for and allow them to use video as an alternative way of expressing their understanding.
