Returning students will know this stuff, but new people can learn how to add some flash to their projects using these two techniques. Have fun with this. 👍
Did you struggle with today's review quiz? Double check those answers.
But first, let's do some matching. Click here and spend five minutes on it.
Fine tune your projects by adding cool stuff at the end. Here's how.
You want to open iMovie or Safari, but the icon has been deleted. How can you get it back?
You want to log out of iMovie, but the spinning wheel of death won't let you. How do shut the &@#$! program down?
Excellent questions, both of which are answered in today's tutorial, hosted by el excelente gato. Me-wow.
I've shown this video for two years now, and no student group has ever shown me a list of their images and where they got them. Ever.
Are we free to do audiobooks? Sure, but when I grade it, I'll need to see a screenshot of each picture on your desktop as you see in the video. The title of it, the website where you got it and its status for reuse should be included with each image. If you can't show me this, your grade with start with a B, not an A, and any other missing points will be deducted from there.
Not to be mean or bossy, but when you teach something and no one ever does it, you need to step up your game.
I bought the Nikons so we could film with them. No one does. Fine. Whatever. What I didn't include is how to take photos with them. That's easy.
What should we remember when using the Nikons? This stuff here. Study for tomorrow's quiz, people.

Next, let's look at some of those social and emotional issues that keep us from doing our best work. Notes today. Quiz on Monday. Enjoy your weekend. 😝
Hey, everyone. I'm out of the classroom today, so here are a few rules to follow while I'm gone.
That's it for rules. Start by clicking here, and we'll do a review at Quizlet for 4 minutes.
We'll follow that with Quizizz, Socrative and Kahoot.
Today's lesson is on camera movement - or more likely, when NOT to move the camera. Grab your handout, take your notes, and we'll quiz tomorrow. See you Friday.
"It's due tomorrow, and I haven't even started yet!"
Sound familiar? Here are some ways to conquer that idea.
Pinnacle will tell you. Here's how to find out.
But first, let's go all the way back to week one and review classroom procedures. Click here to do that.
Here's one that's on my mind. I didn't write a legit script because I wanted you to have some choice in the shots, but check it out.
JeffMedia. How ya doin’? Got a question to ask you.
[Picture of a messy desk]
How’s your desk looking right now? Pretty messy, huh? Thought so. Here are some common sense rules that will keep your workspace tidy.
[CU of book stack]
First of all, those books. They’re in the way, aren’t they? Ya know what? Move them somewhere else.
[Student stacking books up]
Check the front of the room. Is there some space below the white board? As long as you stack them up neatly, and keep your stuff together so it doesn’t fall over, you’ll be great. Why? Because the floor holds things.
[Same thing, new location]
Check the back of the room, too, by the camera cabinet. Move the stools over and pile ‘em up.
[Same thing, new location]
There’s plenty of room on the studio floor, too. Pick an empty wall and set ‘em down.
[Arranging your desk]
You can also stack them longways on the edge of your desk to give you more space if you want to keep them close. Now the extra stuff is out of the way. Are there any other problems?
[Kid One at computer, frustrated]: I can’t type! All these cables are on my keyboard.
Announcer: You know you can move them, right?
Kid One : We can do that? But the teacher is mean.
Kid Two: And he doesn’t like children.
[Show the desk again]
Announcer: Um, no, just move the cables out of the way. Take a minute at the beginning of class to arrange your headphones and your keyboard. Now there’s room to put the camera down on the table when you import your video, and you know why you should do that, right? Because the table holds things.
Kid Three: Wow.
Announcer: I know. Take the time to clean up your workstation before you begin, and things will go a lot smoother. Have a good day, JeffMedia. We’ll see you soon.
Today's notes? Take them during work time. Let's get to it.
Here's a STUDENT PRODUCED tutorial that shows you how it works now. Happy face!
Here's how it's done.
Not always. Sometimes we just can't find it. Here's how.
Sometimes, I provide rough footage for you. Here's how to download it yourself.
We're leaving our SD cards in the computers, so many of them have gone missing. Two of them cameras are so old and worn, the power cord won't plug in anymore. If you have filmed something on our cameras and haven't imported it to your computer, do it today. When you come in tomorrow, the new cameras will be in place, and we'll need training on how to use them.
PS - Any time you use a camera, you'll need to remember the number, not me. If you don't, you may wind up looking through all six of them looking for your footage. Numbers are on top of the camera. Be sure you know yours.
PPS - If you record something during class, import the video before you leave at the end of the hour. Finding the camera the next day, then importing it, is a pain. Import your stuff the same hour you record it, and you'll save yourself a lot of trouble.
If your project needs planning:
Step two is the only thing we haven't discussed so far. Today's the day. Take the notes. We'll quiz tomorrow, and when you create a script, do it like this.
Probably because I haven't taught you how to keep it clean. Keep working on your videos, Jefferson. You're producing some really great stuff.
Study these notes for tomorrow's quiz.
