I love helping students learn. I am most passionate about science and history. I have been using video since I began teaching 5th grade in 1996. Being in front of a camera encourages students to take their presentations to a higher level. We often create video study guides and watch them back as a class as a review. Recently I have taken on a Daily Video Broadcast at our school and learned the magic of Green Screen (Chroma Key). Even though the students know the background is not real, it brings so much more credibility to the newscast, skit, picture, or performance. We use green screen from staff room bonding to after school family activities. Let me show you how easy and fun this can be.
