Another iMovie App Example Project

January15

Twenty-three movies that demonstrate how to solve fraction problems were developed by fourth grade students recently.

Please click here to learn more about this project as well as view the finished products. All of the movies were created using the iMovie app on iPod Touches.

What I really like about this project is that it put the tools into the direct hands of the students. Students were their own videographers. With a few pointers, it is incredibly fast and easy to make a video using the iMovie app. It also is motivating. Students were excited to develop these movies and post them on a wiki/blog to share with an audience. Even better is that this project is coming full circle because students now are attempting each other’s math problems and then accessing the videos for answers as well as help with strategies. It’s almost a mini Kahn Academy.

Please let me know if you have any questions and/or inspirational ideas about using this tool to meet your curriculum needs.

    I just love the math videos created by Room 19. What a great way to have students take a difficult concept and really understand it. I think showing these videos to third graders would help them understand this difficult fraction concept!

    Jaime, I agree. Students had to “storyboard” the problem which made them really think about the steps involved. And then to “teach” the steps via the recording reinforced the concept. If you really want to understand something, teach it, right?? It would be great if you wanted to access these videos with your students. Room 19 would be thrilled to share their knowledge with an authentic audience. Thanks for checking them out!
