The children have begun creating their slides for their Grandparent i-movies.  Many skills are involved in completing this task.  Students are working with two different programs at the moment (googledocs – presentation and compfight – a safe photo borrowing sight).  They have been working to find images in compfight that represent life in the past and present that relates to their information that they collected from their grandparent interviews.

Coming up next, the children will learn how to save their slides as jpegs and then copy them over to i-movie.  This is where they will practice skills on ordering their slides, adding voice over and putting in transitions.  As of right now, the viewing date for these movies is on Monday, November 12, 2012 from 1-1:30 in computer lab 2123.  Hope to see you there!
