iMovie (2013): Use a green-screen or blue-screen effect to superimpose one clip over another You can record video in front of a green or blue backdrop, and then “cut out” the subject and superimpose it over another video clip. This is called a green-screen or blue-screen effect. For example, you could record a friend dancing in front of a green or blue backdrop, and then place that video over a video clip showing a starry sky, so that your friend appears to be dancing in the sky. You can also drag the green-screen or blue-screen clip over a solid-color or animated background clip. If the subject of your video is green or is wearing green, you should record in front of a blue background. The audio from the original clip and the audio from the green-screen or blue-screen clip play simultaneously. Use a green-screen or blue-screen effect In the timeline, select a clip or range that you shot against a green or blue backdrop, and drag it above a clip in your project. Choose Green/Blue Screen from the pop-up menu on the left. Adjust a green-screen or blue-screen effect

Step 6: Use the annotations tool to add text to each frame of your video. Watch my sample video below.

Kaizena · Give Great Feedback iPurpose before iPad The two above images are good examples of purposeful thinking about iPad usage in schools. One, a screenshot of an oft-used tool known as iPad As.. by, focuses on what the iPad can be used for and provides links to various apps that can be utilised for those functions. It goes without saying that it is a very useful website for schools thinking about iPads. It provides nutshell explanations of a number of apps that relate to each iPad as… category as well as pricing. It’s a good introduction into the functionality of the iPad that counteracts the misconception of iPad as consumption NOt creation tool.

Both tools have supported my reflection on iPad use in school and are worth checking out in detail. Now this sounds like a big task and it is. This post will look messy for a while as new ideas get added. I really hope I can get this off the ground.
