I have a confession to make: That’s the first movie I’ve ever created in iMovie…and I have my students do it all the time! I’m exhausted, but what a great experience. I now have such a better understanding of how much work goes into the production of even a short video, and I understand how important it is to give my students plenty of time. And next time I will try to be a better role model by not finishing my work at the very last minute! Yes, next time.
My video gives a very thorough overview of the unit and how I changed my practices and assessments in order to reach beyond modification on the SAMR model of technology integration. So without further ado, here it is! Enjoy.
