Making Learning Visible
Making Learning Visible is about celebrating the learning experiences in your classroom. The Learning Stories workshops are designed to help RVS Teachers and Leaders scaffold the skills to create multimedia stories. In these one-day workshops, you will use your own digital documentation of learning along with your own narration to create an iMovie to share publicly on YouTube. The Pre-Production Workshop scaffolds the skills you need to capture beautiful footage and interviews of students engaged in learning experiences. The Post-Production Workshop scaffolds the narration recording and video editing skills you will need to produce a movie that you’re proud of to share with your stakeholders.
Pre-Production for Teachers
Learn how to capture great images and footage to document the learning journey. For this workshop, bring your RVS laptop with the latest version of iMovie installed, plus the camera you’ll be using to tell your story – even if it’s an iPod or iPad.
Post-Production for Teachers
Learn to craft images, audio and video into an engaging learning story to share with your community. For this workshop, bring your RVS laptop with the latest version of iMovie installed and a pair of headphones, the footage that you captured of your students, and a script of your narration.
MLV in Your Classroom
Scaffold multimedia skills with your students so that they can create and share beautiful multimedia artworks they are proud of. Publish books of student stories and poetry, create magazines of science articles with photography, put on an original play about social issues, produce a documentary film festival. Engage learners by making, creating and doing things that matter.
