If you live in Cape Town and want to know more about creating movies in the classroom, or maybe you have ideas to share on how you have done this – please join our 1.5 hours networking & ToolTeach on Thursday afternoon from 4pm – 5:30pm at St Cyprians. This is something new that we would like to introduce to Cape Town teachers.
At a recent Innovation workshop Glenn Bunger from LEAP Schools, Corrine Cornelius from St Cyprians and Fiona Beal from SchoolNet felt they wanted to start a regular ToolTeach for teachers who would like to share creative ideas on how to bring more technology into their teaching. This ToolTeach will encourage networking among teachers and will concentrate on one particular tool that teachers will find useful in the classroom. The tool selected for the first ToolTeach is Windows Live Movie Maker which is a free tool from Microsoft’s Partners in Learning Network. The reason this was chosen is because Microsoft’s Innovative Educator Expert competition is in progress and it requires a two minute video about the lesson you enter for the competition. This ToolTeach will show you some ideas for this.
The format of the ToolTeach on 13 June
Networking. Tea and coffee will be served
An introduction to this tool and its effectiveness.
Teachers who have used Windows Live Movie maker in the classroom will share on how they have used this tool successfully. You are invited to share.
Practical session. How to make a video using Windows Movie Maker (bring a few digital photos and/or movie footage along for this session if you would like to)
