How I Use It
My students use iMovie to capture their best practices on paper, pdf files, images, or live recording. They enjoyed getting into groups and providing a one minute clip of their math knowledge and sharing that clip with their partners to compile the clips into a three minute iMovie. Some students recording themselves solving math questions on a sheet of paper, while others provided a Popplet, pictures from their picture roll, Notability notes, or a small clip from Explain Everything. My students creatively compiled the math movies, added special features to their films such as music and special effects from the iMovie features. The iMovie's were exported into a class google drive folder for sharing and review purposes.
iMovie is a great way to engage students into compiling their talents into one film roll. They are continuously engaged and seeking better ways to improve their movies and most importantly the movies are used as a final review at the end of the semester. I love everything about iMovie: simple, intuitive, seamless, exporting features, sharing, creativity, multimedia, and most importantly universal among all content areas.
