  • Digital Media with Students in Classrooms A scaffolding approach to getting media making and content creation into every teachers classroom. Version for Windows for Macs, consider iMovie, iPhoto, and Final Cut Hall Davidson Director, Discovery Educator Network http://blog.discoveryeducation.com/media_matters
  • Begin Simple then Grow! This PowerPoint Walks You Through:
    • PowerPoint insert movies
    • Photo Story build movies from stills and create narrations and music
    • Moviemaker build movies from other movies, add new narrations to instructional videos, edit clips
    • Adobe Premiere Elements multiple track video creation, chromakey kids into videos
  • PowerPoint Always put video clips into your PowerPoint presentations for students. Students should put media into their own PowerPoint presentations, too. Under menu, Insert > Movies and Sounds Before you build your PowerPoint , download your movies onto your computer.
  • Go to where you have downloaded your movies. Keep your movies in folders by grade level , subject area , etc. It will make things easier! These movies are from Discovery Education Streaming a great place to get curriculum-based, standards linked media! http://streaming.discoveryeducation.com Note: If titles are too long, PowerPoint wont play them. You might have to rename them to make them shorter.
  • You will be asked whether you want the clip to play automatically or when the presenter clicks it . I prefer the contol of clicking on the video to start , stop , and discuss it. Sometimes, you make want the clip to start as soon as the slide opens. You can place more than one movie on a slide. Play them in whatever order you choose.
  • Some Final Tips: PowerPoints dont have to be linear . Movies or slides can link from keywords or pictures , then return to the home page. Click on Coral Reefs picture and you go to Coral Reefs slide where the video plays. Click on cell membrane and the video plays on this slide. Same for cytoplasm, etc. These PowerPoint examples are on the Discovery Education training disc .
  • Some Final Tips: When you download your videos, only take the segments you need. Lessons are more effective with short video clips that relate to the lesson you are teaching. Add some hands-on activities that the video supports or introduces. *Segments from Discovery video download page. Video is more effective for teaching in short clips !
