Aloha Bound! Green Screen in the Classroom
No passport is necessary for this trip to the Islands of Hawaii. Join us for some island fun! This interactive session will demonstrate the versatility and ease of using green screen and film-making in your class. Participants wishing to use their own iPad should download the Green Screen app by Do Ink, however we will provide iPads for small groups to use.
Green screen technology can enhance any subject or topic by transporting students/teachers to a particular destination by inserting a background image. The process for using green screen addresses several common core standards that are dependent on the content that is being relayed in the film.
By using green screen, students can use a backdrop of a foreign country, a book setting, or natural landscapes like volcanoes while reenacting details that bring a story or narrative to life.
