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.

11 Storyboarding Apps To Organize & Inspire Young Writers

11 Storyboarding Apps To Organize & Inspire Young Writers | iPads in preK-12 schools & the common core | Scoop.it

"

For students who dread writing class, a blank page can look a lot like a ten-foot monolith; an imposing, empty slate towering over their homework list. Visual storytelling is one way to break students out of writer’s block, and storyboarding apps are a pre-packaged strategy you can use to bring images to the narrative. Whether your students are afraid of writing or you’re simply looking for a way to break up a brainstorming session, these 10 storyboarding apps for iOS and Android devices can help inspire–and organize–students of any age.

 

The best part might be the flexibility of these apps. While they can be used for strict storyboarding in the creation of fiction, they can also be used for other tasks, including documenting project-based learning, sharing assignments, or capturing research notes."

Jenny Sloane's curator insight, October 11, 2013 1:52 PM

This is the first article I read about Common Core and it already gave me an entire new perspective on this revolutionary change to the education system. From talking to my first grade teacher that I work with at University Park, I thought Common Core was a very strict and structured program that really limited teacher's creativity. However, from reading this article, I got almost the exact opposite opinion. I think the idea of integrating subjects together is a great way to reinforce main concepts. One example in the article was when 4 students had to share stories that were working on for a reading and writing activity. Instead of just calling on the students to present, the teacher asked the students to show on their fingers how many students needed to share. Some people raised 4 fingers on one hand, 2 on one and 2 on the other, and then the teacher showed a different way by raising 1 on one hand and 3 on the other. I was really impressed when I read this because I think it a great way to practice basic math skills in a fun way that is not just going through repetitive motions. I think the best way to acquire skills, such as math, is by practicing. WIth Common Core, students have more opportunities to integrate important materials and skills throughout the day, regardless of what the set subject is. Additionally, I think critical thinking and anaylsis is arguably the most important skill to teach students and starting this process from a young age is even better. One main arguement for Common Core is that it will "deepen the learning and critical thinking." Critical thinking is so crucial because it forces students to fully understand material, rather than just rely on memorization. One potential problem I immediately see with this change is that some teachers may not be comfortable integrating other subjects.
