During the first week of school, the sixth graders spent some time considering issues related to Cyber Citizenship. They worked in groups using the FREE Shadow PuppetEdu app to develop a PSA video that talks about one the issues they were learning about. Here are their completed videos:
Students, when you are done watching the videos you are going to leave a comment to this post. Please tell:
- One new thing you learned about cyber citizenship
- One thing you would improve next time you did an iPad video project like this
- One (or more) complements for other groups telling something specific or outstanding that you liked about their video
This is the first time we have used the Shadow Puppet Edu app with our students. (Note: what the students create with this app has nothing to do with puppets!) I really liked how easy it was to search within the app for images and I was very surprised to see that the app automagically added the credits for the images at the end. WOW! It is a great option for making narrated slideshows with students and has lots of options for them to be creative with how they put their videos together!
Here is a link to a little video tutorial showing Shadow Puppet Edu:

Use these video to gather ideas to make a public service announcement video giving students good advice on staying safe and being smart when using technology.
