Digital Storytelling-Green Screen in action

After our successful work with iMovie for our Book Talks (see my previous post here) my students and I decided to take on a new project using a green screen for our study of Taiwan. After 4 weeks of inquiry into Taiwan and a 4 day, 3 night visit to Taiwan, the students wrote a script for their own TV talk show focusing on one aspect of Taiwan that they were interested in.
First they were recorded reading the script in front of the green screen. We then uploaded their videos and had a quick review of iMovie tools, adding the green screen function. Not more than 40 minutes later, students completed their Movies and were ready to upload to their blogs.

@colingally kindly created a green screen recording studio for us!

Students partnered up to work on editing the movie.

Here are a few of the final products for you to enjoy!

I am looking forward to using a green screen more next school year! What have you done with a green screen?
