It’s EASY being Green! Using the Green Screen to Make Student Learning Visible

Description: What if students were the creators and producers of videos rather than just the consumers? Harness the powerful opportunity that a simple “green screen” provides,  to literally open up a world of possibilities! Green screen technology makes it possible for students to create newscasts, travel back in time, create weather reports, illustrate stories with engaging photos, and much more!  Join this exploration of using student created and/or teacher led green screen videos to enhance media skills, literacy, problem solving, and support a rich learning environment.  Engaging students with this authentic, real-world media tool not only gives them the opportunity to create, share, and collaborate around their learning, but also strengthens higher order thinking skills.

Audience: K-8
