  2. 2. iMovie in Education  http://iMovie in Education  This site is a combination of different iMovie videos that people have created for use in the classroom. This site has videos pertaining to fractions, elementary science methods, and just basic overall questions.
  3. 3. Summary #2  What is most appealing about iMovie, according to this article, is the fact that it is so diverse. When a teacher created an iMovie of a pond which featured animals and plants that live around the pond. Instead of looking in boring textbooks, this tool allows the pictures to come a live and gives the students a feeling of being at that pond and may give a better grip on the topic being discussed.
  4. 4. Personal Reflection  One of the things I found interesting and proves that iMovie can have an important impact on the learning process of your children. Sierra, a seven year old, was on summer break before third grade. She had been struggling with her fractions. Dr. Rebecca Ambrose introduced iMovie videos to help guide her along the process of learning the material.
  5. 5. iMovie lets students focus on content, not videography  iMovie lets students focus on content, not videography  One of the major fears of using this tool in the classroom is the belief that students will focus on making the video instead of learning the material involved. This article goes on the prove that this is not the case. This video shows that it is possible to create an impressive or satisfactory movie and nail all the educational points at the same time.
  6. 6. Summary #2  Chris Dawson, the creator of the article, feels the bets part of about iMovie is that the process of creating the project is the prime focus because the editing tools are incredibly easy to do.  He feels that Apple has done such a great job with this tool, he hopes that the company can come out with a better calculator that can help students pick up better mathematical skills.
  7. 7. Personal Reflection  This article defends the fact that iMovie is a great tool for the classroom and does not distract the student from the tasks at hand. Since editing and formatting are incredibly easy to use with iMovie, excellent work is easy to do and allows a student’s imagination to run wild without it hurting his or her grade. I can not wait to install this tool into my classroom.
  8. 8. English with an Edge  Teachers & Technology: English with an Edge : May 2008 : THE Journal  An article about Andie Brown, an English teacher from Parkway South High School, who is pictured below. She used iMovie in her classroom. She noticed that all her students participated, even the students who did not join in on projects earlier in the year. A tool like this allows students to direct their own creations and puts them in charge. Every teenager craves the opportunity to be in charge.
  9. 9. Summary #2  Mrs. Brown even created her version of the Academy awards. For example, she had an award for most Administratively Offensive and Best Recovery. Thinking outside the box is what interests young students. They do not want to sit down all day and be lectured about something they can find out in a book. Students want creativeness and that is what iMovie is!
  10. 10. Personal Reflection  I know some of us had this article in an assignment earlier in the year, but I was a big fan of this article. It proves that some teachers do not reach their full potential out of fear of what their superiors might feel about them going to a more technological tool, instead of the boring textbook. A major reason why principals fear technology because when thinking technology, expensive comes to mind. This is a cheap and great tool for students to use and believe me my students will!
  11. 11. Conclusion  iMovie is an extremely interactive tool and should be used more frequently throughout schools in this country. We have new technologies that could further educate the youth of today, yet we hold back on using them. Why? Why punish the students by depriving them of this great method? It is ludicrous to do such a thing. Thank God we have teachers like Andie Brown who do use tools like iMovie to further educate her students.
