Be Anywhere, Anytime

  1. 1. Be Anywhere, Anytime Green Screening in the Classroom Kelly Schweda
  2. 2. Rational During the 2008-2009 school year my principal attended a conference where a teacher shared about using green screen technology in the classroom. She came back excited and ready to make it happen in our school. We were already equipped with Flip Video Cameras and she made a trip to the local fabric store and returned with a large piece of green fabric. We had no idea what we were getting into, but it’s been a worthy adventure. In the beginning we had a lot of software challenges, but have since been able to purchase Adobe Premiere Elements and Adobe Photoshop Elements to create the green screen effect. The problem is at this point only our Technology Coach and myself know how to use this software. With increasing interest from other staff members to use green screen technology in the classroom, I feel it’s important to offer training to other staff members so they too can utilize this highly engaging video technique.
  3. 3. Class Description Do you need a way to spruce up your old lessons? Are you tired of teaching the same thing in the same old way? Are you looking for a way to increase student engagement? Join us for, “Be Anywhere, Anytime,” a staff development that will allow your students to transport themselves anywhere, at anytime. Go back in time to the colonial times, fast forward to the future, or enter into the world of make believe; with green screen technology you can take them there. Join us as we explore the world of green screen and be ready to see your lessons transformed.
  4. 4. Goals  100% of teachers that participate in the training will leave with a new idea for teaching a previously taught unit based on a post training survey. 100% of teachers that participate in the training will feel more confident in using the Adobe Software to create green screen videos based on a post training survey assessment.
  5. 5.  100% of teachers will report an increase in student engagement in the topic they used green screen for two months after training.  Using the survey data from two months after the training 100% of teachers will report using the green screen technology or will be willing to accept help in using the technology in their classroom.
  6. 6. Be Anywhere, Anytime Topic Approximate Time Introduction: What is green screen? 3:45-3:50 Why would I use green screen in my 3:50-3:55 classroom?

  7. 7. What is Green Screen  If you’ve ever watched the weather you’ve seen green screen in action.  Another name for green screen is Chroma Key.  Green screen involves the removing of all the green color in the video or image and replacing it with a background of your choosing.  It’s a creative, highly engaging way for students to demonstrate their learning through video and image creation.
  8. 8. Why use it in my classroom?  Highly engaging way for students to prove their understanding of a topic.  Fits well with Problem Based Learning and Big 6 Models.  Great opportunity for 21st century skill development. Allows students to work collaboratively towards a shared goal.  Allows you to address several standards and benchmarks from all different subject areas at the same time.  Easy to differentiate.
  9. 9. How can I use green screen in the classroom?  Create images of your students in different settings to incorporated into student made books or posters.  Have your students report live from an event in history.  Have students transported into diagrams to explain their understanding. Create Public Service Announcements.  Create movies of your students’ creative writing allowing them to act it out or use student created puppets.  The possibilities are endless!
  10. 10. How do I make it happen?  Facilitate the production of your student videos just like you would any other video, but this time when you do the final recording, do it in front of the green screen. Make sure your students are wearing green.   Follow along on your handout as we demonstrate the process.* 10 Quick Steps to Finalize a Green Screen Production * If we were able to be in a computer lab where we had a site license of Adobe Premiere Elements, teachers would do this along with us.
