Movie Maker in the classroom
There are several reasons why teachers should involve students in producing movies. Firstly, students become more aware and increasingly critical of this powerful medium. Secondly, getting students to create their own movies, perhaps even with their own narration, is a fantastic way of encouraging them to communicate with each other and getting them thinking about issues such as target audience, planning, team work and purpose. Finally, it is also an effective tool to use to check a class’s understanding of key themes, concepts and overviews. We hope you find these tutorials useful!
