Title of the segment: iMovie as a Presentation Tool in Classroom
Time designed for the segment: 1 hour and 30 minutes.
This segment depends on Mac laptop so participants will be asked to come prepared with their laptops. I will be dividing the participants into small groups (maximum of 3 in each group). The session will run for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes.
Description of the event:
Participants will be introduced to an example of a presentation done on iMovie. The main idea is to make them visualize the final product and then give them a chance to implement their own presentation. The aim of the presentation is very simple; a comparison of two cities from different continents (example: Khartoum vs. Miami). The area of comparisons will be: street signs, roads, public transportation, parks, nature, landmarks…etc. I will have about 6 to 8 slides.
- Learn how to add images to iMovie.
- Learn how to add text to images.
- How to add transmissions.
- Edit your images.
- How to add background music or sound.
- Create a citation slide at the end of the presentation.
Process of the segment:
12:00 pm- 12:03 pm: Sharing the presentation, “Khartoum vs. Miami”
12:04 pm- 12: 24 pm: demonstrating how the program works and how the presentation was made.
12: 25 pm- 12:35 pm: Open discussion as to how this tool could be used with different subject matter, and how it could be used to apply ISTE standards for both teachers and students.
12:36- 12:46pm: time for brainstorming and ideas regarding presentation (participants could use the same idea as the original presentation).
12: 47pm -1:07pm: the creation of the presentation.
1:08 pm -1:25 pm: sharing group presentations.
1:26pm – 1:30 pm: Feedback time (filling in a survey of feedback on the workshop).
