Great Plains Summit: July 16th to 17th, 2020

Please oh Please, not ANOTHER green screen newscast

Session Description

So many teachers have now seen the green screens and many are wondering “but how can I use it my classes”? This session will go beyond tutorials and show lesson ideas applicable for any classroom teacher. Although the “wow” factor may have worn off a little with what a green screen is, teachers are finding incredible ways to use it with their classrooms. This session will demonstrate the process from start to finish of how to not use this tool, but how to utilize it to drive instruction. Examples will be demonstrated on ways to use this in Flipped instruction, Science projects, Art Comes Alive, Social Studies time travel, and more. Session participants will help demo the ease of use, level of fun and connection to course content for green screen tools. Come see how these type of lesson ideas empower students by shifting the lessons away from teacher driven toward student-centered instruction. Leave this session ready to start using these lesson ideas right away with your students.

I am Video Production teacher and former Technology TOSA and high school social studies teacher in Rocklin California. My passions are Ed Tech, Innovation, Social Studies, Podcasting and Teacher Professional Development. I have been teaching since 1997 and have been an advocate for all things "tech" since I first began teaching. Along with teaching, I've been presenting at technology and social studies strategies workshops both in my district and throughout the country. I am the co-host of the "Check This Out" podcast where we chat weekly about new ed tech resources and ideas. Along with presenting, I am on the board of CapCUE; the Sacramento affiliate of which is an organization which focuses on infusing technology and developing leadership.
