This spring students made iMovies about the geography of India (I have in the past assigned brief presentations about this, which was typically met with groans). Working with partners they were required to research their geographic feature and present information via iMovie. The thing that I was most struck by (aside from their movies being so much better than my sample) was the number of other resources that they used to create their movies. Here’s the list of apps: Notes, Moodle, National Geographic Atlas, Adobe Ideas, Camera, YouTube, KeyNote and Puppet Pal. They also used sticky notes, the textbook and created written scripts. A good project that will improve as I begin to develop rubrics for what I really want these to look like.
