iMovie in Your Classroom

Looking for that one app that you can integrate seamlessly into your classroom?  Give iMovie a try!  Yes, it is a bit on the pricey end at $4.99, but the cost shouldn't be an issue when one considers the possibilities with this app.
iMovie by Apple
iMovie was one of the first apps that I downloaded after @chericson handed me my new iPad2 at the beginning of the school year.  I wanted to give students the opportunity to create videos quickly and easily.  I also downloaded Prep for iMovie.  It is a great companion to the iMovie app and will walk you through every feature available within iMovie.

How have we used the iMovie App?
  • Student created/produced Book Trailers
  • Student created/produced Newscast
  • Student performances
  • Highlight reels of special events in school (Guest speakers, Student projects, Mystery Skypes, All-Stars, Spirit Rally)

One of the best features of iMovie is that you can upload your completed iMovie directly to YouTube, Vimeo or the Camera roll with a few clicks!  If you haven't downloaded iMovie for your iPad yet, give it a shot it is so easy to use.
