Overview:Students will be creating a video regarding a topic of their choice. In terms of content, it is very flexible. It can be a short documentary, a how-to video, a presentation, a video showing off a hobby, ect. They will be spending most of their time researching and practicing for their video, with time taken aside to collect feedback from their peers in terms of stand-up meetings and exit tickets. After a couple drafts, a final video project will be presented.Thumbnail created by me: Erik Mineer

Preparing students for the world of tomorrow that will be means we need to incorporate more technology in classroom that doesn't simply replace something older, but instead is something you couldn't accomplish without the technology. Before you ask kids to use a brand new technology (to at least some) in a formal assessment, you first need to teach them how to use it and practice it in a low-risk setting so they're willing to try and take risks. iMovie can be used in the classroom to accomplish many tasks - kids can create a virtual gallery of their learning throughout a unit, give a visual and oral report on a topic, become a tour guide to a country they're learning about, create a book trailer for an independent reading or literature circle assignment ... the list is long.
This is a 5 day unit about validating sources on the internet and social media. It is taught so that students understand and respect the obligations of using social media wisely before sharing and the importance of giving credit to creators through citing sources. It is a blended unit with a final project to be done in Apple's Keynote where students will show what they have learned in a slide show to other students in the class. They will be able to practice what they learn in class and become better at research, validating sources, and spotting fake news.
