Week 2-3 Plan


Divide into small groups:  

Introduction Group iMovie or Explain Everything on one iPad
  • Take a picture of each person and/or find a picture that represents an aspect of their life (sport, food, social justice aspect they care about).  
  • Each person records voice over the picture saying why they are here, an interesting thing about themselves,  a motto that describes their life, etc. (Storyboard so each person is prepared with what they will say)
  • And/or... Create short video clips where each (or some people) tell why they are here, an interesting thing about themselves, a motto that describes their life, etc. And splice them together in a video.

Add music (optional), but make sure it isn't louder than the speaking.
Publish to Blog.   Ideally, we could come back together last 5 minutes or watch together on Mon.
