iPad Media Camp is a three day series of hands-on workshops designed to inspire and equip educators to facilitate student media projects using iPads. Participants should BYOI (bring your own iPad) to camp. iPad Media Camp is led and facilitated by Dr. Wesley Fryer, author of the 2011 book “Playing with Media: simple ideas for powerful sharing.” Check out the two minute video trailer for iPad Media Camp 2012 to learn more!
Day 1: Screencasting and Narrated SlideShows
Learn how to create and share screencasts and narrated slideshows online using an iPad including recorded audio synchronized to selected photographs or images. We’ll view different examples of student-created narrated slideshows using the iPad and review effective processes for facilitating student narrated slideshows. iPad Applications for creating narrated slideshows we will explore include ShowMe, Explain Everything,Educreations and Sonic Pics.
Day 2: Quick Edit Videography
Day 3: Interactive Writing and eBooks
Learn how to setup, use and moderate content on a classroom blog to improve student writing skills. A moderated classroom blog is the ideal platform to use to share announcements, classroom news, and student work for a public audience. In this workshop we’ll use several free blogging and learning management tools. These will include KidBlog (powered by WordPress), My Big Campus, and Edmodo. We’ll also explore how free Posterous.com sites can be used to share rich media including images, audio and video files from iPads including “cart-based” iPads using a shared student “sending” email account. In addition, we’ll learn how to create enhanced/multimedia eBooks including digital text, hyperlinks, images, and embedded videos using iPad apps as well as other software programs. These will include Book Creator for iPad, iBooks Author software, Apple Pages software (part of iWork), and Calibre software (free and cross-platform).
