Lets Make a Movie.... With Our Interactive Board?!

Explain Everything

These are just a few of the resources you can use to create an instructional video for your classroom.  There is one resource you probably have hanging in your classroom right now that you won't add to your list - the interactive board.

Promethean's ActivInspire and Mimio's Mimio Studio software have a recorder located in the tools/application feature.

This simple to use feature allows you to record your voice and what you are doing on the board and/or computer screen.  In fact, the videos in the "How-To Videos" section where made with Promethean's recorder and a Mac.  Which reminds me.. I need to make a few more of these!

So, when will the recorder feature come in handy?

- make an instructional video on a new topic for students and parents
- make a quick homework help video and post to your website/blog/social media
- make a step-by-step video for student/parent reference
- make a "here are the instructions..." video for students
- let students make a video to how mastery of a topic

You can find four different hand-outs here on how to create a video with either ActivInspire or Mimio Studio.
