LIGHTS! CAMERA! ACTION!
Charles Barrett Elementary School prides itself on its strong academic program, dedicated staff, and an incredible student body. CBES is a leader in integrating the latest technologies into the classroom.
Through your support of Spring2ACTion, you are helping Charles Barrett students use technology integration to deepen their understanding of curriculum in fun and innovative ways!
Charles Barrett students have been busy creating their own scripts, minute movies, forecasts and action clips documenting their understanding of science, social studies and reading concepts. Using the Green Screen by Do Ink app, students are able to record themselves in front of a green screen and place themselves in a desert, a thunderstorm, or even on the moon!
Not only does the Green Screen effect work on the iPads, it also works on the Chromebooks! Using WeVideo, students are able to use similar Chroma Key filters to place themselves in Jamestown, travel down the James River, or even act out a scene from a book they are reading.
Other apps can utilized for student creation! Students can create content in other apps such as Tellagami, Drawing Pad, iMovie, Seesaw and Book Creator. These iPad apps allow students to use choice to create books, movies, digital posters that personalize their learning.
Through your support of Spring2ACTion, your are helping Charles Barrett PTA purchase Green Screens to use for recording along with external microphones and iPads with accessories. These technology tools will be available for students to use to integrate technology into all parts of the curriculum.
