Vicky Brown and Jennifer Francis, along with colleagues Kristin Richardson and Connie Nobles from Bowen Elementary, Powell County, brought students to KET’s Media Lab in December for a workshop in iPad Video Production.
These students already make school video projects using traditional camcorders and pcs for editing. Their teachers wanted them to explore using Apple iPads to make complete video productions within the device using the built-in camera and the iMovie editing app. iPads and similar portable devices by other manufacturers represent quite a savings to educators in equipment cost, teaching time, and class project development time.
Here are some pictures of the Bowen Elementary students exploring the iPad for video production. During the workshop they learned the basics of using the iPad camera; capturing good video and audio segments; arranging segments in the iMovie app’s editing timeline; changing segment properties such as length and audio volume; adding text titles; using built-in title/music templates; recording audio into the timeline, and more.
Here’s an example student-produced video project from the workshop…
