Using imovie and digital stories.

I have used digital stories as an extension when doing information texts. The students first wrote an information text on their countries culture and then created a digital story using their information text as the script. I find it is a good way to trick students into writing texts and using them for a different purpose. I have done others with recounts and procedures as well. Imovie is simple to learn when just using still images. Below is an example of a students completed work.

    Hi Peter,

    I've recently joined the VLN and just found your blog about using imovies.  I teach ESOL at a primary school and my students make presentations, but I have gotten some good ideas from you.  Thanks so much.  David
