The green screen in action.

Hi Staff,
Here is a video students from year 11 IPT prepared using the green screen technology. The girls created a storyboard to plan the video and had to target the video towards primary school students. They created their own logo using flash and audio using garage band. The aim of the task was to develop the students skills in movie making (imovie), audio manipulation (garage band), flash animation (Adobe Flash) and to raise awareness of about climate change (environmental stewardship). The background clips were downloaded from youtube using www.catchyoutube.com and www.keepvid.com. These links are free websites that allow you to download videos from youtube so that you can keep an offline copy.

Claymation uses clay, a digital camera, a computer, and video software (imovie) to engage students in active learning. Students create clay figures and make them come to life by posing them in multiple frames and creating a mini-movie.

At Bethlehem staff can access the clay resources, camera's and laptops to get the students to tell a story, explain how scientific concepts work, studying relationships in PDHPE, building characters in English, creating a play. It encourages cooperative learning and use of multiple intelligences. With Claymation, your classroom will become an active learning environment.
