    Yesterday's #TechTipTuesday tweeted by EdTechTeacher showed how to "create a moving newspaper video" using the DoInk Green Screen app https://twitter.com/EdTechTeacher21/status/56... They did this using a new feature, the Transform tool, added in Version 1.6 released last week. It enables users to move, scale + rotate photos, videos and even the live camera, the #1 request of our users. Using two fingers, users can drag to position the image, move fingers closer together or farther apart to scale, and twist them around each other to rotate.

    Think green screening has to be expensive? Well, Heather Russell, a Tech Integration Specialist tweeted this photo of a mini green screen (a.k.a a green file folder.) "File" this idea under "brilliant" AND "cheap." Love it with our Green Screen app.

    Think you and your students need lots of time and artistic skills to animate? No way! The Animation and Drawing by DoInk app is designed for short classrooms and attention spans. This new tutorial shows how an animation can be created in under two minutes on the iPad. The secret is using the thousands of art "props" in our app and our pathing tool. Think of "pathing" as merely recording a movement. Once a user creates a path, press "play" and the object then follows the path. The below tutorial https://vimeo.com/111045565 is a great way to get started with our app and excites students to learn more. They can then create frame-by-frame animations and advance to the more Flash like features. Animating is a great way for students to learn while doing and to "show what they know" in Math, Science, Storytelling, etc.

    This photo https://twitter.com/amaworsham/status/5616024... generated a lot of interest this weekend from the #innovateECISD conference in Texas. It is of technology ambassador teachers using our Green Screen by DoInk app with mini green screens. Their green screens are pizza boxes covered with green contact paper purchased from Home Depot. The teachers are moving their characters using green Starbucks straws. Our app makes those green straws invisible so that in the final saved movie all you see is characters moving. We thought this was a very cool way to create a cheap and mobile green screen. Endless creative learning possibilities.

    St Thomas More School has so embraced green screen technology that they added two new green screens. Notice that they did this by painting the cinderblocks in their hallway green. What a great way to utilize space outside the classroom for learning. http://t.co/TVgdGO4qYX

    How can teachers get students "to engage with Hamlet and MacBeth in ways that won't bore or embarrass them?" Educator Lawrence Reiff blogged that "Students learn Shakespeare when they perform Shakespeare" and suggests five "amazing tools available for iOS devices that will allow students to create projects that force them to connect with the text in fun and exciting ways." Those tools include the DoInk Green Screen app, Thinglink, iMovie, Tellagami, and ComicLife. Click the link http://www.aplithelp.com/shakespearealive/ for details as to how to use those tools and sample projects.
