I read a great article the other day on iPads in the classroom, over at iSource. The title, as mentioned above is ‘10 Reasons the iPad is an awesome tool for classrooms and education’. It’s written by a guy who would know, Brad Gurgel,since he serves as a principal and teacher at a school that has adopted iPads on a 1:1 device to student ratio.

 

Some of you may remember Brad did one of our What’s on Your iPad posts with me last year.

 

I won’t give away too much of Brad’s Top 10, but I will share my favorite reason on his list:

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
