John Pearce's insight:

OMG this looks so amazing and one that I will have to play with to really get my head around how it can best be used. Make sure that you check out the movie at the end of this post to see TouchCast in action.

Picle lets you reserve the moments that matter. Telling stories with photos and sound clips using an iPhone and sharing them via the web.

"This fun app will record a few seconds of ambient audio while you snap a picture and help you to organise all your moments into a vibrant Story. It's video for the Instagram generation – you don't need to be a designer to get a brilliantly atmospheric effect.

The app is really simple to use. Click Capture and choose the length of time you'd like to go with your picture, and Picle will do the rest."

Using iMovie for iPad in a Science classroom

Using iMovie for iPad in a Science classroom | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it

"One of the reasons why iPads have been such a success in Science is that it offers a different way to demonstrate learning which is accessible to all students......

 

I recently used iMovie with a Year 9 BTEC class and asked them to work in pairs to create a short documentary of a planet within the our solar system. Students were given a brief success criteria to follow but I wanted them to be creative. All students were engaged with the task and enjoyed having the freedom to create their film. Great pride was shown by all teams to create the best short film. I feel that this was more than usual and increased pride and engagement in the task was purely down to the use of the iPads, team work element and also the sense of freedom of the task."

Guide to iMovie on the iPad

Guide to iMovie on the iPad | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it
I have updated my guide for iMovie on the iPad. iMovie on the iPad is in many ways a significantly better application than its much larger cousin on the Apple Mac.

John Pearce's insight:

John Larkin's pdf iMovie how to guide is a good intro guide.

This article explains a comparison of iMovie on the iPad and on the Mac Book. Later to discover that iMovie is better on iPad, it also discusses the application of the iMovie and how its being used on both devices.

Kiera Hamling's curator insight, April 26, 2015 4:58 AM

Subject: Digital Technologies 

 

Year Level: Years F-2

 

Strand: Digital Technologies Processes and Production Skills

 

Content Descriptor:  Work with others to create and organise ideas and information using information systems, and share these with known people in safe online environments

 

Elaborations: Participate in safe online environments, for example sharing ideas and information through intranets, messaging only to people they know, bookmarked websites and moderated online spaces

 

Using different types of data to create information for sharing online, for example creating a multimedia class profile that includes a photo of each student, a personal audio recording and a written message

 

Planning and creating text, drawings and sound files to share online, for example jointly creating a photo story to illustrate a fable or fairy-tale from the Asia region or a local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community story

 

Cross curriculum priorities and general capabilities:

 

*Personal and Social capability - making responsible decisions

 

*Ethical understanding - Students develop the capacity to understand and apply ethical and socially responsible principles when collaborating with others and creating, sharing and using technologies –materials, data, processes, tools and equipment. 

 

Differentiation

Teachers can monitor access and how student use the app. 

 

Examples of using this in the classroom:

 

This app is a child friendly layout version of iMovie. The app itself is perfect for the classroom as children can learn quickly how to navigate around and use the app confidently. Possible the best feature for the use in classrooms is the in built trailers!

 

The app allows you to create 12 different Hollywood style trailers all with different styles. You can customise film studio logos, cast names and credits , add and adjust videos and photos and add existing content from your library, or record new footage straight into your trailer.  

 

Both storytelling techniques and persuasion can easily be covered using this app. Trailers for reading books, class stories or even using the trailers as planning for a written story. It really can be used to get the creative juices going within Literacy.  

 

This app is perfect for planning and creating text, drawings and sound files to share online, for example jointly creating a photo story to illustrate a fable or fairy-tale. Students will be able to work with others to create and organise ideas and information using information systems, and share these with known people in safe online environments.

imovie is good for people who are partial to using an ipad.  There are several other good moviemaker programs but most of them are limited to computers and not tablets

Three iPad Apps for Serious Moviemaking | Creating Lifelong Learners | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it

"I had the opportunity to receive evaluation copies of three iPad apps that I have included for a long time on my app wish list. Each app currently costs $29.99 so they are relatively expensive as far as apps go. I’ve been working with each of them for about two weeks and I’ll explain here what they do so you can make a decision on whether they would help your production."
