Tonight in class we were given the opportunity to explore using digital videos in the classroom. I am fairly familiar with iMovie and Movie Maker and am comfortable with using those programs with my students; however, I did not realize that there are so many different types of videos you can make! Different types of videos include:
– Talking Video Head
– Screen Casts
– Caught on Tape
– The Slide Show
– The Mash Up
– The Edited Movie
Dean also mentioned during his presentation that when having your students shoot videos for an assignment, have a time limit of 3 minutes maximum because videos are far to complex to be any longer than that.
Here is an example of a complex video that was shot very well. I found this video extremely touching and I just had to share.
Since we were learning about making videos in the class, we were most definitely allowed to try to make one ourselves. Kristina, Krystal, and I worked together to create a short silent video and ended up having a ton of fun making it. Here is what my group created!
