Using Do Ink's Green Screen app for iPad, students added a picture of their sturgeons and recorded a video of themselves discussing their artistic inspirations. Videos were then uploaded to YouTube, and QR codes were created using the website QRstuff.com. Since the green screen and the app are new to us, I asked just a few student volunteers to try it out this time. Here are a few of their samples.
Next quarter our plan is to have all students record in front of the green screen. We are also thinking about having students include their original drawings in the background and explain more about their artistic process. In addition, these videos can be further enhanced and edited by smashing the green screen app with other apps such as iMovie. There are so many possibilities! The best part was how excited our student volunteers were to create these simple videos. We hope the community enjoys learning more about our 7th grade artists.
