Over the past few weeks, the multimedia tech students have been exploring how to use the drawing and Magic Move features to create some amazing animations. They followed this helpful video to get started with some of the basics of Magic Move.
Ten Ways to Use Magic Move by Simon Pile
Then they had an opportunity to get creative with Magic Move. I especially loved this Teacher Appreciation animation created by Ethan V. (We used the screen recording feature in iOS 11 to take a video of their animations.)
Students found lots of helpful ways to use Keynote to share about things they had been learning.
Next, the students took selfies and traced over top of them to draw their self portraits. Students really made some amazing portraits!
Finally, students used all kinds of tools in Keynote to add words and images to their stories. Here are videos showing some of their animations:
Julie even used GarageBand to add some awesome music to the background of her video:
All of our students have blogs where they post and reflect on their work. Joshua’s comment, “What I like about keynote is that it’s Google Slides, except 5x better” really made me smile, because it shows the depth of creativity the students were discovering! It’s more than text and an picture on a slide!
