.Students recorded the fastest kid in the school (Trevor) running down the hallway. They then filmed themselves running the same distance as fast as they could. Using the time on the films, they set up equations and solved to see at which point Trevor would have overtaken and bypassed them. Math, for the win!
To create the doubled effect in iMovie we simply stacked to videos.
Then, we move to the controllers on the top right tool bar and simply adjust the opacity of the layered videos.
I have to say, as far as student engagement goes, this lesson was through the roof. I also think that the tech was simple enough that it made the learning curve on building the video pretty manageable.
All in all, a great project!
I'm a technology curriculum facilitator, and I'm excited about integrating technology in the classroom.
