6th grade BWMS art students had to pick one Renaissanceartist from a selected list. Alternatively, students could tell me whatever they learned about Ancient Egypt in their Social Studies class and they could make a movie about one topic they learned in there. They then had to type up a biography paragraph on Edmodo prior to receiving their IPod.
Afterwards, students had to log into their Edmodo site, where I posted a link of student photos. I took a photo of the students in front of green paper to simulate a green screen effect. Unfortunately, the Photo Puppet Go app doesn’t have the “remove green” effect that my IPad app has.
Once students downloaded their picture from Edmodo, they then had to import it as a puppet in the Photo Puppet Go app
The next step, students had to download one piece of art from their artist and then upload it as a background in the Photo Puppet app
Finally, students combined their puppet and the background into a scene. Within the scene, they would animate their puppet while recording their voice which demonstrated their research on the artist.
When the film was done, a student could Tweet about it, upload it ot their YouTube account or save it to the camera roll.
