In this 4-week online Flex Class, students will learn how to create animated video scenes on their iPads using the free Apple Keynote app. This class is geared towards students who have never used Keynote before or who have some experience with Keynote and would like to improve their skills and learn new tricks to create animations. Although Keynote is an app that is primarily used to make presentations, it also has many creative features that will let you design cool animated effects!...
By the end of this class, students will have had the opportunity to learn a variety of skills in Keynote that they can creatively use to make creative animated videos.
Karen Bosch is a recently retired teacher with over 4 decades of teaching both in the elementary classroom and with PreK - 8 students using iPads, Mac Computers, and other technology tools. She has vast experience with designing technology learning experiences for students geared for their age level and needs. Her passion is to help students unlock their creativity using iPads and other technology devices - not just play games and watch videos! She is an award-winning educator and has been recognized as an Apple Distinguished Educator and Michigan Technology Using Teacher of the Year.
It will take about an hour each week to go through the videos and create the animated project for that week. I encourage students to participate in our class discussions as it is a great way to connect and learn from each other. If desired, additional time will be needed to try the optional enrichment skill/project ideas.
This class will require parents to download the Apple Keynote app from the Apple App Store onto their iPad prior to the start of the class for their child. This free app is rated for students age 4 and above. Please download the app 24 hours in advance of the class to avoid difficulties. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/keynote/id361285480 ***Also, students will need a separate computer or device to watch the lesson while working on their iPad! An Apple Pencil or stylus is optional for week 3 of the class - students can also draw with their finger.
Students will receive encouragement and constructive feedback from the teacher on projects that are posted in the classroom.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
