Video Production and Digital Media for Teachers & Students

Summer Academy


In addition to covering many aspects of digital video production, I will also cover other helpful aspects of incorporating technology successfully into classroom work. Including: Using Free and Open Source software for picture editing, such as Gimp (a free image manipulation program), using Free and Open Source software for music creating & editing (Audacity, FL Studio and more) and learning about different file formats and converting audio/video files with free programs.

Teachers will learn how to complete video and digital media projects, getting media files ready for uploading, posting and sharing, how to download and save picture, video and audio files to use in projects, and basics of copyright law guidelines for Projects.

Participants should bring ideas for projects that they want to develop and work on during this class. Bringing your own devices to class, such as cameras, iPads, and smart phones, would be helpful, but not required. Also, if participants could bring flash drives for storing project files, that would be helpful, but not required. By the end of the class, each participant will finish a short video/media project that they can share with others based on a topic that relates to their curriculum area and/or a topic of interest.
