Using iMovie to assess learning

April 17, 2017 — Leave a comment

My grade 3 students are learning about soil.  The first lesson I teach is a Smartboard lesson where I provide 7 reasons for soil. Here is the Smart Notebook file if you are a Smarboard user.

At the end of the lesson, students are given 8 pictures and are asked to retell the 7 key reasons for soil.  Students who need more support get the pictures below because they have the sentences on them. Most of my students get the slides without the sentences.

Download the images with text here. Download the images without text here.

Soil is good for_with text_1 Soil is good for_with text_3 Soil is good for_with text_5 Soil is good for_with text_6 Soil is good for_with text_7 Soil is good for_with text_8 Soil is good for_with text_9 Soil is good for_with text_10


Once students have these images in the camera roll, then we can open iMovie and bring these still images into a new iMovie project.

Next, have students use the microphone and record the main point for each picture.

Here is a link to examples:
