Make Video Stories using Stop-motion, Green Screen and Screen Capture
These materials have everything you need to get a class started making videos. You don't need fancy equipment. Start with stop-motion videos so students can learn how to sequence a story. Using an iPad and some custom backdrops (included) will fast track the creative process. After stop-motion video lessons (easiest to do with a larger group that is just learning) then move into different video techniques like green screen or screen capture.
Digital storytelling using video techniques represents in-demand skills while fostering a creative learning environment. Whether you are a classroom teacher, instructional assistant, library media specialist, or home school parent, this guide is for you!
