Some things we’ll cover what ’ s so special about DS on an iPad?! what makes this a learning (as opposed to playing) activity? where ’ s the rigor?! How are students engaged and motivated? What Common Core standards does DS meet? What ISTE NETS-S are covered in DS? What is a common classroom workflow/timeframe? What are alternative apps to iMovie? Let ’ s see some student samples and a sample creation “ live ” DS right before our eyes!!
What ’ s so special about DS on an iPad?! Simple, touch interface Like using a giant iPhone All components of DS are self-contained Device is very portable (helps immensely when recording a script) It may well be they way people collaborate in the future
What makes this a learning (as opposed to playing) activity? Content research can be as challenging as the instructor wants to make it. Requires concise writing and revision to work as a script Many different skills can be practiced and woven together to make a whole Authentic collaboration to achieve a goal. Learn/demonstrate visual literacy Learn to speak in a presentation voice Provides an opportunity for peer review and critique
Where ’ s the rigor?! Research prompts Research prompts can define content requirements Research prompts RubricsRubrics setting a “ bar” can be used initially or summatively summatively Rubrics summatively Grammar, clarity, and spoken word skills can be required and assessed.
How are students engaged and motivated? Construct their own understanding of the content Ownership of final product Know they’ll share it Allows social time Get to pick how they portray the required content
What Common Core standards does DS meet? Reading, speaking, listening Creation of multimedia materials Researching and presenting skills Collaboration and critiquing Revision and editing skills
What ISTE NETS-S are covered in DS? Creativity and Innovation Communication and Collaboration Research and Information Fluency Critical Thinking, Problem Solving and Decision Making Digital Citizenship Technology Operations and Concepts
What is a common classroom workflow/timeframe? workflow DAY ONE: Assign topic, do basic research notes, fact synthesis DAY TWO: Write, revise, proofread script, start storyboard storyboard DAY THREE: Finish storyboard, begin compiling images on Camera Roll, practice voice narration DAY FOUR: Add images sufficient for length of voiceover, record voiceover, adjust images to fit voiceover DAY FIVE: Final polishing, adjust sound, add background music/sounds, add titles and transitions DAY SIX: Share and critique
