The first thing that Joe is showing is a clip featuring Sean Astin. It highlights AFI Screen Education, a program that encourages using video to create movies. These are the key terms, sound familiar? It what teachers want.
Joe is highlighting The 21st Century Educator’s Handbook.
Why should students create movies? To help all student have a deeper understanding of course content. It’s important for teachers to understand that they do not have to understand film theory etc. to make a good movie. It’s just like writing an essay. Start with the Introduction, move to the Body, and finish with the conclusion. Or, as Joe put it, “Tell ‘em what you’re going to tell ‘em, tell ‘em. tell ‘em what you told ‘em.”
What kind of videos can you create?
PSAs…Public Service Announcements
“Olds”…History told from a news perspective
Reenactment of historical events
Retelling a peice of literature…like Romeo and Juliet.
Joe is highlighting a lot of visual aspects of the movie examples, easy techniques for conveying emotion as well as information.

Had an awesome time in Leslie Fisher‘s iLife preconference workshop today (hosted by SIG MM). Found the Faces tool in iLife iPhoto ’09 which is totally awesome face recognition – and connects to Facebook! How cool is that?!
Also had fun with Garageband and made a little podcast, with pictures…
