In this episode, I share my favorite tips for getting started with movie-making and some of my favorite tools for supporting your students in the process.

Overwhelmed with the idea of movie-making with students? There are so many great options, but it can be hard to figure out where to begin!

In this episode I share my favorite tips for getting started with movie-making and some of my favorite tools for supporting your students in the process.

In addition to sharing some of my favorite online resources, I also talk about free apps that will help you plan a project from start to finish and even upload your videos directly into YouTube or Vimeo — or share student projects with a smaller, more local audience!
