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.  

Program objectives:

-       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).
