Cool Tools for the 21st Century Classroom

Become a Green Screen Wizard with the Do Ink App


do ink appIf you want to create amazing student-driven, directed and edited videos placing them anywhere in the world and/or with anyone or anything imaginable, then learning how to produce videos using a green screen is a must!

Of course, in addition to the actual green screen, teachers need to select a piece of software or app to get the job done. My personal preference: the Do Ink app.

So, with all kinds of resources available, why did I choose this particular tool? Well, my rationale can be summed up in a few words: simple, unique, fun, versatile, powerful and kids can tell a story, explain an idea, demonstrate a concept and/or express themselves in a one-of-a-kind way.

That said, I presented green screening with the Do Ink app a few weeks ago during a cool tools workshop I facilitated for teachers in my district. Since then one of them has gone app-solutely crazy with creating some super cool videos with her first graders—and her colleagues. President’s Day 2016—her latest masterpiece commemorating today’s federal holiday—is highlighted below. Be sure to check it out!

A huge shout out to my friend Kyley Longo-McGarvey for tech-ing her skills and her students’ learning to the next level! Your vids are the bomb diggity!

In addition to the Do Ink app, Kyley also utilized the Intro Designer app, iMovie and PowerPoint—making her video quite the app smash sensation!

Classroom Connection:

Use the Do Ink app to leverage green screen technology in your space. Not only can teachers bring learning to life, but providing students with the opportunity to generate this type of video project allows them to demonstrate knowledge and creativity in a fun, meaningful and engaging way.

Stay tuned for additional green screen videos from our teachers and students…
