Digital tools and education go hand it hand. I think that using comics and story telling in history classes would truly benefit the learning experience.

Portable Green Screens in the Library 

Portable Green Screens in the Library  | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it

Earlier in the school year my students created whole-class videos using our large green screen studio. While I assigned students a variety of tasks (director, camera operator, acting coach), my students spent the majority of their time on the carpet as an audience member. At the end of these units I wondered how we could increase student ownership of the production. Could I have my students create a green screen movie without having to play the audience member for large portions of the time? Could they be empowered to create a movie independently of the teacher? Could this be done by kindergartners and first graders?


For most of the school year I struggled with these questions. That was until I met Brenda Windsor and Mary O'Neil of Trumbull, CT at the Fairfield University "Education Technology Collaboration Day" in March.  Brenda and Mary presented on how they have incorporated green screens in the classroom, and shared the idea of using a pizza box to make a miniature portable studio. Here is a link to the video they created.  From that moment, I was on a mission to have my K-2 students write, direct, film & star in their own collaborative group mini green screen movies. "

Becky Roehrs's insight:

What a great idea-use pizza boxes as your green screens for your iPads (or smartphones), add (tape) green (paper) to rulers, then add (tape) animal cutouts (or people, monsters, aliens) to your green rulers, and move your rulers around on your green screen pizza box! You're ready for a live-action video production.

Very interesting and insightful.  I really enjoy incorporating S.T.E.A.M. into my day to day lessons and of course making it available for students as a rotation area that they can utilize before an after school.. However, i do find myself providing more builds than anything else.  Your green screen creation is very insightful because i feel that i would allow more of their creativity and imagination come to light and of course build on more classroom collaboration among students.
