Saturday, May 16, 2015 “How to Help Your Visual Students Learn Using Movie Magic" with Sydney Sheren
There are so many students doing amazing things with technology and we are thrilled to be having one of these students joining us for our show this week. Sydney Sheren is a 9th grade student at Westhampton Beach High School. She created and ran the Middle School’s newsletter and is currently the Freshman class President. Her passion for film making has led her to screen one of her movies at the local movie theater and to attend the New York Film Academy for the past two summers. She inspired to teach others why technology is helpful and how they can easily use it to learn in a quick, easy, and fun way.
Sydney was selected to be a keynote presenter at the Student Technology Conference in January 2015, and we were so impressed with her presentation that we invited her to come and share it with us on Classroom 2.0 LIVE. Sydney’s topic is: "How to Help Your Visual Students Learn Using Movie Magic.” In this presentation, we will be taking the under utilized application of iMovie and partnering it with other programs to make visual learning easily accessible in the classroom. By going beyond iMovie we are teaching students how to use many different programs that can work together to create educational films. Students of the technology age easily gravitate to computers and the mediums that you can create using them. Once a student learns how to use iMovie, they can easily learn other applications like Garageband.

Classroom 2.0 LIVE is an opportunity to gather with other members of the community in real-time events, complete with audio, chat, desktop sharing, and sometimes even video. You are invited to join us for our weekly Saturday show with co-hosts Peggy George, Lorie Moffat, and Tammy Moore!
The show lasts an hour, and links for more information and accessing the Blackboard Collaborate room can be found below and on the Using Collaborate page. We strive to make our shows very beginner-friendly, and if you've never participated in a live web meeting, don't be afraid to come and take a peek at the show's format. We would love for newbies to join us and 'dip their toes' in the conversations until you feel comfortable enough to 'jump in the conversations with both feet'! We want to encourage "experienced Web 2.0 users" to join us to contribute and extend the conversation by providing real-life examples and tips/suggestions.
Weekly sessions will typically include the following:
1. A specific topic will be discussed each week with a special guest presenter, so you can be prepared to bring links, ideas, tools you'd like to share. Once a month the special guest will be a "Featured Teacher" who will share ways he/she is using technology to support learning in their classroom.
2. The "Newbie Question of the Week" (introduction to topic)
3. Announcements of upcoming shows on The Future of Education.
4. A Livebinder is created for every show that includes all of the links shared by the presenter and participants during the webinar.
