1. You can take the student’s finished product, add it to IMovie, and then make a video recording at the end, giving feedback, and then hand back that product to the student. That is the easiest way.
2. You can take the student’s finished product, add it to IMovie, and then video record yourself on a green screen and then superimpose yourself onto the finished product, giving feedback along the way. (Think Mystery Science Theater 3000, where a movie critic is on the bottom of the picture). This is a difficult way of feeding back, but it is very unique, and the students would enjoy it.
- Audio recording
Audio is a great way for giving feedback, and it is easy if done properly. As shown below, add the video onto IMovie, then go up to Window and “Record Voiceover”. You can then watch the entire movie, and give feedback along the way. The student can then hear about every spot he/she needs to work on for next time, and it only required you to watch and talk about it as you were watching.
