Finally a Green Screen App I can use with Pupils!

Finally a Green Screen App I can use with Pupils! | iPads Pre-school - Year 2 | Scoop.it

In my opinion, though others may disagree, the iPad has been crying out for a simple and effective Green Screen app since it's introduction. I won't mention any specific apps but the ones I had tried were far too complicated for Primary pupils and the activities became very teacher led. I have recently been using Green Screen by DoInk. https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/green-screen-by-do-ink/id730091131?mt=8 with upper Key Stage 2.

What I like most is how quickly the pupils can create their videos using the app. They find the background video/image and add that into the time line. The video of the pupils standing in front of a green screen can then been filmed in real-time over the top. Videos can then be shared to the camera roll. I particularly like using the app in conjunction with apps such as I Can Present (as a teleprompt) and iMovie (to stitch videos together and add soundtrack for GarageBand)

I am looking forward to trying more Green Screen work with other age groups next term to see how they handle the app.  I am also keen to try the Touchcast app as it includes many of the features of iMovie, Explain Everything and Green Screen in one app.

Cath Parker's insight:

I have tried using Green Screen FX app on iPads with Year 2 with limited success so looking forward to trying this one. One of the main problems with Green Screen FX is that most of the backgrounds are of war scenes / weapons - the only useful background was a beach.
