ED TECH HOT TOPICS

Today's assignment was to make a short 60 second video on some EdTech hot topics.  I decided to use a trailer in iMovie to create my assignment.

If you have never used iMovie, I highly recommend trying to make a trailer.  With trailer option in iMovie, I was given music and pre-set template for text, video and pictures.  I was able to create my assignment after a few edits to picture sizing and typing in my titles.

Created a Digital Story


So a few weeks ago, I started my journey towards a Masters in EducationalTechnology.  For one of this week's assignments, I had to create a digital story.  I had never really thought about creating a digital story.  So I took some time and watched a few.   I really enjoyed watching many of them.  Our assignment asked that our digital story be compelling and personal.  I decided to use iMovie for my assignment.  I had played with iMovie but never really created anything with it and had never recorded my voice.  I found iMovie to be very user friendly when recording my voice.  It was simple to start, stop, delete and repeat.  

I decided to make my digital story on suicide awareness because that is something that is personal and something I believe can be compelling.
