For our second professional development session in the high school science department, we decided to do a multimedia extravaganza, giving faculty the opportunity to learn all sorts of cool multimedia tools and ideas for incorporating more multimedia in their classroom.
The five specific things we worked on were:
- Recording video and making movies with imovie
- Creating screencasts
- Finding and editing photos from the internet
- Extracting video from YouTube and other video websites
- Ripping DVDs and cutting clips to use in lessons and activities
Each of the links above will take you to the individual self-paced tutorial, with both written instructions and screencasts that you can follow on your computer. The tutorials are also broken down into beginner/professional/all-star levels so that you can find the tutorial that best matches your experience.
If you want to see the full document, follow this link, and you’ll be treated to a couple of additional screencasts showing you how to zoom objects and add video to a keyonte presentation.
