6th Grade Cyber Citizenship Videos using Adobe Spark Video

We are off to a great start in our sixth-grade technology class. Students have just finished our first unit. After watching some videos on cyber citizenship issues, students worked (either alone or with a partner) to develop a  video of their own using the Adobe Spark Video app. Their video needed to share a message about ways to honor God by being responsible, safe, and smart when using technology. Each video needed to include text, images, and audio recording. The videos are turning out great! Over the next few days, I will be working to get the completed videos posted onto our class blog.

(Note: I’ve just started posting them – more are coming, it takes a while to get everything uploaded!)

7th Psalm Videos September 2019

Over the past few weeks, the seventh-grade students have been creating videos based on words from a verse from the Psalms. After learning about Creative Commons Copyright, students used copyright friendly websites to find images and music for their video. They then used iMovie to add the photos, used the Ken Burns effect to add movement to the still images, and then added titles, credits, and music. This is always one of my favorite projects – the videos are beautiful and truly reflect God’s creation.

Below are posted the videos that had no proofreading mistakes. (I will post additional videos as students make corrections.)

Sixth Graders at Work in Tech Class

The 6th graders have been busy at work creating Cyber Citizenship Videos using the Adobe Spark Video app. They have been combining text, images, and audio recording to share a positive message about being God honoring, safe, and smart when using technology. Student worked either individually or with a partner to create their video. Here are some photos of the students at work. I will be publishing the student videos soon in a separate blog post! They turned out amazing!

The students also have been working in GarageBand to compose their own music!
