How I Use It
We used iMovie to have students create a movie trailer as a culminating activity for Dante's Inferno. The students loved using the iPad and iMovie to create their own movie trailer that they could share with their peers. iMovie enhanced our lesson by solidifying skills and concepts the students had been working on.
My Take
iMovie allows students to be creative at every level of Bloom's Taxonomy including creating, evaluating, analyzing, applying, understanding, and remembering. I would definitely use iMovie again! The students can share and publish finished iMovie projects as movies to your camera roll or as podcasts that are accessible on any number of platform via YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, or through iTunes.
