Videography for Educators

This Apple Learning Interchange exhibit features tips and techniques to assist in the creation of quality video products. The exhibit provides example planning documents and video examples to illustrate concepts and skills. This exhibit assumes you are already familiar with the fundamentals of operating your camcorder, have used iMovie or Final Cut Pro, and are ready to learn the art of videography. Concepts covered include planning, defining the project, your video style, production decisions, pre-production scouting, planning scenes and shots, equipment setup, camera use, effective lighting and audio, capturing the video, framing, cut-aways and cut-ins, camera movements, integrating still images, editing techniques, the art of editing, effective cuts and a list of other resources you might need.

"Research has borne out the potential for Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) as an aid to educators in support of each other, and, to improve the teaching and learning environment by modeling the self-organization and self-determination that are hallmarks of independent, lifelong learners. These characteristics help to reinforce the idea that everyone at school is both a teacher and a learner. My eCoach is the best tool of which I am aware that can support these self-organized, peer-learning groups.

Without question, My eCoach is a one-of-a-kind innovation that similar Open Source tools find difficult to approximate generally because there does not exist the same level of customer service. What My eCoach has made unique, no other has come close to creating the kind of safe, scaffolding environment of this system. Although a proprietary system, My eCoach is an "open environment" with the ability to integrate other school and district tools including Open Source tools."
