Description: Learn to shoot, edit, and publish a video on an iPad in a fraction of the time this process takes with a laptop computer and “traditional” video gear! Flash-based video camcorders on mobile computing devices (like the iPad) can empower learners to create and publish “quick edit” videos. In this session we will view example iPad videos, discuss "menu thinking" for digital media in the classroom, explore different apps for quick-edit videography, and learn to to successfully facilitate student-created iPad videos. Prepare to have fun and unleash a wealth of creative ideas with your students during and following this workshop!
