One of our final tele summer workshops is Connecting Digital and Print Literacy – Creating Book Trailers on July 30. From 8:30 to 3:30, learn how book trailers are a great way to connect digital and print literacy in a real-world application. This is a popular session; we have offered as a Midwest Education Technology Conference precon for several years now.
On Monday the 30th, discover how to create and manage a book trailer project in your classroom during this one-day workshop. We’ll make book trailers using Photostory 3 – a free Microsoft download. The workshop will cover how to help your students select their audience, and decide how to construct their message to accomplish the persuasive goal of the trailer. We’ll touch on copyright compliance issues & practice finding acceptable images and music. Creating voice-overs using the free download Audacity program will be demonstrated.
Not sure if this is for you? Don’t worry- the skills covered can be applied to any subject area and any grade level. In addition, 1 graduate credit is available if you are interested. The cost of this session is $110 for a CSD member and $140 for a non-member. Register today!
