During this residency students will learn to take pictures and upload them; manipulate images; set up a green screen and key it for green chroma removal; work with DoInk on iPads in order to create movies that put them somewhere in the world other than the classroom. Younger students will focus on their content area using their final green screen application as an assessment of their overall knowledge. An example might be to create a script based on their knowledge of a habitat, locate video and photos to use in their video, and then put themselves into the habitat and discuss the diversity they see or describe the habitat. Older middle school students will research their topic then create a video that will allow them to present their knowledge to the classroom. They will learn about the "rule of thirds" in videography, alternative assessment tools, and be responsible for all of the scripting and production of their video.
