Barb Anderson and Sara Cavitt (l-r), of Junction City Elementary in Danville, brought their broadcasting club students to the KET Media Lab for a workshop in Using iPads for Video Production and a tour. Using camcorders or iPads to record video, they usually edit their student news productions with the iMovie program on an Apple Mac pc. At KET, they explored using an iPad as a complete production tool for both recording and editing using its built-in camera and the iMovie app.
Here are some examples of student-produced videos that demonstrate quick and clever group work in story planning, recording, and editing including background music application, text generation, use of still pictures and recorded audio, and more from the 5th graders’ work in the 1.5-hour workshop (mouse-over image for navigation arrows, swipe on portables):

Junction City’s students were a lively and creative group. We look forward to seeing more of their video production work soon.
