These are the slides for my presentation about how to use iMovie for iOS in classroom settings. Included are shooting tips, apps and accessories, and sample lessons for classes of all levels. The iMovie demo portion was a live demo, as was the in-session hands-on project, so these are not included here. This was first presented at the annual CUE conference in Palm Springs on March 15 & 16, 2013.
