One of the most common questions I get from teachers is how to start a movie-making project with their students. There are so many great tools out there that 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.
Get Started with Movie-Making
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!
Listen to the podcast episode on your favorite platform:
- First, choose a movie-making tool and create an exemplar.
- Next, model how to storyboard with students.
- Then, brainstorm keywords to use when searching for images, icons or videos.
- Finally, establish an audience and how to share student creations.
