In preparing for a Green Screen Workshop this week, my good friend Matt and I created this presentation profiling the app Green Screen Movie FX Studio, by Epocfield ($2.99, iTunes link). We have been using this app for almost two years now, and have been very happy with what it can achieve. Although the learning curve for this app is steeper than most, the possibilities are limitless. If you take some time to play around and learn how to use this app, you can really have a lot of fun with it. We used it with third to six graders a couple of summers ago, and they were able to do it quite well.
This is the week when a revolution begins to sweep through schools in England. It involves a whole new way of teaching children about computing - but I suspect many parents, and even some teachers, know very little about this important moment in education.
As children from five upwards return to school, they are going to have to start learning how to program - or to "code" to use the trendy term which seems to upset some old-school programmers.

The concept of coding is very foreign to me, but the idea of analyzing, understanding, and creating is not. Maybe that's where we are going with "coding" in education? At any rate, it's a thought to consider, what are you going to do if, in the near future, your administrator asks, "what are your students coding today?"

There’s a difference between knowing that something exists, being able to find it rapidly with a moment’s worth of research, and then being able to pull together multiple sources of information into a coherent analysis.
Social media provides a variety of tools, commonly referred to as Web 2.0, that educators can use to engage students and enhance essential skills (communication, collaboration, creativity, media literacy, technological proficiency, global awareness.
Here's another way to engage your students or ferret out the formative assessment of their understanding. It is fair to ask why another one after we have used PollEv and Pollcode and Socrative, Todaysmeet, and on and on.

Yes, Barb's insights are right on target. I have been using EdPuzzle and find it easy to use and providing a complete package for teachers who want to ascertain which students viewed the video, answered the embedded questions, which questions were answered correctly or what did they understand from the video! Highly recommend.
