An intro to Movie Maker for students

October 23rd, 2012 by Brian Leave a reply »

Today we’re using Windows Movie Maker with a few PE classes to create public service announcements teaching personal safety techniques. Our campus is piloting Bring Your Own Technology, so students were able to bring cameras/iPods/iPhones/etc. in addition to the more traditional USB drives to import their video clips. I’m excited to see the different locales since not every group was filming in the courtyard.

Side note: on our networks we found out that if an iPod/iPhone is locked (passcodes/sliding patterns), the computer will say that it’s installing drivers on Windows 7 but will not show up in Autoplay or the Computer explorer. Unlock the device and the files are accessible.
