Google Classroom

I have a couple of Google resources for you this week.

All of the Google Education On Air videos are archived and you can watch them on demand here.

Google Classroom can be a helpful way to go paperless in the classroom.  Watch an introduction video on how it works.  I love the fact that it syncs with your Google Drive.  I am looking into using this next year to stay more organized.  I believe all of my district is using GAFE (Google Apps for Education) now.  It would make sense to play around with it and see if it is something you think would benefit you next year.

Shoot Better Video

Here is a blogpost from Kahoot about their new Ghost Mode feature.

The keiki are wrapping up their video making units with me. We used Telestory, iMovie, and Green Screen by Do ink.  Feel free to explore these.

Tips for shooting better video:
1) Shoot in landscape mode
2) Think in shots, don’t run the camera nonstop
3) Keep the brightest light behind the camera
4) Treat your video like a still camera to avoid shaky videos
5) Zoom with your feet, don’t pinch
