The mini-project we came up with was a simple, fun presentation that would allow the students to use all the elements of iMovie:
- Pick a topic (ie kittens or gummy bears or...)
- Find 5 pictures (only five!)
- Import pictures.
- Place on timeline
- Add narration
- Add sound effects
- Add transitions
- Add titles
- Tweak final view
- Export as a QuickTime file. (Share)
In two sessions, after a brief demo, students were able to produce great little clips that they could show to the class. (An extra bonus: it was exciting to see students helping each other problem-solve issues that came up. )
I also used this same format on a Pro-D session with McNeely staff.
