Joe Konecki, The Digital Classroom: iLife, iDVD, iPhoto, and more!


This session will explore iLife, a fully integrated suite of digital authoring tools and why they are important in a 21st Century classroom. These tools give students the ability to create stunning digital projects such as photo books, slideshows, documentaries, podcasts, digital stories, music, and websites thus allowing them to take more responsibility for their own learning. iLife, in conjunction with rich media from resources like Discovery Streaming, empowers students to creatively express their knowledge with video, images, text and sound. Constructing a podcast from beginning to end will be demonstrated during this session.


*Alternative software packages for Windows users will also be given*

Below is a pdf of my presentation for the session.
