Welcome Gabriella Teachers and Administrators to a “Playshop”, where you will learn to make a book and a movie that tie to content standards. Today is a day for Project Based Learning. There will be an opportunity to put your work on the web. Please visit http://web.mac.com/techmediakid to see what we will be doing today.

Schedule: 9:30-12:30 Making a Book Lunch Break 1:00-4:00 Making a Movie You have all been given a resources CD. This CD has tutorials, content, K-4 Standards, today’s presentation and other goodies to help you best use the digital tools at your disposal in your classroom. Today we will explore what you can do with the iLife set of tools from Apple. We will also explore using Microsoft Power Point as a Page Layout program. The Resources CD includes a “Cookbook” from the Center for Digital Storytelling http://www.storycenter.org • This is a curriculum that has been done with over 10,000 people in 16 countries over more than a decade. Many thanks to Joe Lambert and the folks at CDS for allowing us to offer this to you. We printed one copy of the Cookbook to pass around. We encourage you to please sign up for a free 60 day .mac account. This will enable you to explore some of the simple “file management” web publishing for your creative work. Dan and I both have accounts and, it only takes a few minutes to sign up and get you going on the web. iPhoto There is a very detailed intro to iPhoto basics on your resource CD. Depending on interest, we may go through this intro or simply respond to your interests as you work on your projects. • Say Cheese! iMovie In the CDS cookbook there are great instructions for how to make a work of art. We may go through the Cookbook together or simply respond to your requests as you work on your projects. • Everyone has a story to tell! Garage Band See what you can do with Podcasts and even see a story book come to life. We will spend a brief time looking at this program. • Radio-Radio-Radio iWeb • Finally, web publishing for the rest of us iDVD • So what to do with these works of art? Dan and I hope you got something useful from our time together today. Please take a few minutes to complete the evaluation, so we can continue to improve. Thanks again from the entire Learningtech.org team. It’s an honor serving a school like Gabriella.
