Flipped Classroom Video using the Green Screen by Do Ink app
Interested in activities for the flipped classroom? Alessandra Pallavicini, a teacher, recently blogged http://web20atschool.wordpress.com/2014/07/14… that she didn’t “like textbooks very much”, especially when they discussed topics using words “that students cannot possibly know.” So she created a video for use in the Flipped Classroom “to motivate students to read” and to help them understand. Her students were reading about Scotland and the words, “Haggis, porridge and tartan” were mentioned without explaining what they were. So Alessandra created a video for her students explaining the terms http://bit.ly/WLnAU7 Her video was her first time “Appsmashing.” She used the Tellagami app to create the avatar who explains “Haggis, porridge and tartan” while standing on a green background. Then she used the DoInk Green Screen app http://bit.ly/1f3Sj20 to place the avatar in the correct background and location on the timeline. Then she used iMovie to edit her video. Alessandra concluded that there was “incredible potential in appsmashing” and in having students create their own presentations or videos. AND we concluded that we’d pass on the Haggis but would definitely try the porridge. Great job, Alessandra!
