How I Use It
I used this app in my self-contained reading classroom. We would read a novel and then the students would pick their favorite scene from the book. They would write a play with characters, setting, plot, etc. The students would then design the set, make costumes, and practice each of their character parts. We would film the end result. Our school has a news channel that is broadcast on Fridays for students. We would submit our plays to be played.
My Take
iMovie is very easy to use. It is easy to record, edit, and to send to another device to be saved or played.
