On Thursday afternoon 16 April 2015 at 3.15pm we held a very informative SchoolNet webinar entitled ‘How to use Windows Live Movie Maker to cimpolify the content of a lesson’ which was presented by Phuti Ragophala a #MIEExpert from South Africa. Windows Live Movie Maker is a free resource from Microsoft that can be used to drive the lesson in class. This tool could be free on your PC or laptop. If not it can be downloaded free of charge from the Microsoft Educator’s Network. (We encourage you to join this amazing network with all its free resources and offerings.)
The Webinar description
Phuti gave us some ideas on using Windows Live Movie Maker in the classroom to narrate the lesson, summarize the lesson, sing the lesson, converse about the lesson and rap the lesson. She used four videos in the session as well as her presentation. Unfortunately viewers couldn’t hear the videos so Phuti talked us through them. I have added the videos below since they are available on YouTube.
