How I Use It
The use of this app is only limited by the imagination of the teacher and student. My students use iMovie to create videos that demonstrate their scientific knowledge, and the results are consistently excellent, pushing them to think about sometimes "boring" subjects in a new and interesting light.
My Take
A truly intuitive app from Apple, iMovie for the iPad appears to be the leader in tablet-based music production applications at this time. Students with little to no prior knowledge of video production are able to get a video up and running in very little time. This app proves to be a reliable and easy-to-use way to show knowledge in a creative, non-traditional way.
