Flip/Movie Maker Introduction

January 27, 2010

Written by Eric Bird

Flips are great. The second you pull one of those little shiny recorders out in a classroom, you can hear a pin drop. Every student literally sits on the edge of their seat, their eyes shinning with the hope that maybe, just maybe, they will be able to use it. They were in luck! Today was a Flip video/Movie Maker presentation at Mettawee, and I was in the classroom to do a group project like I did with podcasting. From Flip use and software instruction, we moved on to Movie Maker and the endless creative possibilities of adding sound, transitions, effects, voice over, text, and still photos. We also introduced MP4 to AVI conversion. This was a lot to cover in one go, so I will be back when the students try it out for their first class project. Overall, though, once the students got to handle the Flips, record interviews with their buddies, and play with Movie Maker, it was student engagement at its best.
