    Elementary art teacher Tricia Fuglestad shared this photo of her classroom green-screen setup at Dryden Elementary. It is a very clever set-up. Tricia is having her students do stop-motion animation on a green background so that they can layer their video in the DoInk Green Screen app and then add whatever background they want. We can't wait to see the results.

    Green Screen technology can put students anywhere in the world. In this case, Paul Stolt's class used the DoInk Green Screen app to explore the Great Wall of China https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y68dT_l34Zw&a... The students did an excellent job and their enthusiasm in sharing what they learned is contagious.

    Our favorite tweet of the week came from Ellen Monti Kraska, an educator from Palo Alto, CA. She tweeted "Green Screen app from DoInk = happiness! Less than 5 steps-filming to camera roll." So glad we were able to take the pain and complexity out of green screening and make it fun for her and her students.

    Scholastic's article last week, "Create a Green Screen Video in the Classroom" http://www.scholastic.com/teachers/top-teachi... praises "the endless possibilities for learning" when students are involved in movie making. They love using a green screen as it puts students "anywhere in the world" using the "super-simple Green Screen app by DoInk." Movie making puts "students in the director’s chair" which "facilitates authentic learning and assessment opportunities and results in Oscar-worthy productions, with little to NO prep!" They conclude that the "potential teacher- and student- directed uses for green screen movie recording are endless" and suggest interesting ways green screening and DoInk can be used.

    Jonathan Wylie, an Instructional Technology Consultant in Iowa wrote an excellent article on “How to Create Green Screen Effects on the iPad” http://t.co/gJXFUKQWpy Jonathan notes that “video effects are no longer the preserve of video professionals" and can be done easily in the classroom. His article lists the essential items needed to get started which include an iPad, a Green Screen and an iPad app. His green screen app of choice is the Green Screen by Do Ink app http://bit.ly/1f3Sj20 which he notes from testing, “is among the most effective, and the easiest to use.” The article demonstrates how the green screen effect is applied using the Do Ink app and also provides useful green screen shooting tips. As Jonathan concludes, “it might sound like a hard thing to do” but “using green screen effects on iPads is easier than you might think…it’s possible to achieve professional looking results with very little effort.”

    Nothing makes us happier than seeing pictures of students using our apps. This one in particular, made us smile. It's not everyday one gets to interview a "celebrity" in a helmet. Imaginations are unleashed with an iPad + a Green Screen + the DoInk Green Screen app.

    Julian Buss, a Science Teacher from Farmington High School tweeted a cool Earth Science presentation this weekend made with the Doink Green Screen app. It is titled "Mapping the Ocean Floor." His tweet said he "just started" using our app and "smashed" it with Tellagami and Explain Everything. Then he posted the video to YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NoAuKxB3D8E&a... It's an example of how "appsmashing" can create great results. It's also an example of how to use our app without a green screen. He tweeted that his next step is to buy a green screen for his students. Watch out world!

    Are you familiar with “app-smashing,” a technique coined by Greg Kulowiec? http://kulowiectech.blogspot.com/2013/11/app-... It’s the process of using multiple apps in conjunction with one another to complete a final task or project." You start with one app. Then use one or more apps to add more features. The key to App-Smashing is the camera roll, as it enables you to store pictures, video and sound files which can then be accessed by other apps. The emphasis is on “creating” and then “sharing” publicly, what is created. For example, to YouTube, Vimeo, etc. We love the concept of app-smashing because it provides endless opportunities for teachers and students to be creative while using the power of the iPad. For a list of apps to smash, Greg created the app-pack list below which he says, “are the key tools that I use to create my multi-media app smashes.” The list includes the Green Screen http://bit.ly/1f3Sj20 by DoInk app. The DoInk Animation and Drawing app http://bit.ly/1sh9DZj can also be used. So are you ready for some good old app-smashing? Let’s rumble!

    "Divergent" is heating up the box office. Want to know what one librarian thinks about the book?
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30xDqHxBWP8 She created this video using our Green Screen by DoInk app. What a great job and to think, it was her first try at using it. She blogged about her experience
    http://powerlibrarian.blogspot.com/2014/03/gr... Awesome job! Now to check out the book at the library.

    April is National Poetry Month when school and libraries celebrate poetry and its importance in our culture. One of the ways they do this is with poetry performances such as this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9MA_dZWGAM by a 2nd grader shared by Sam Glicksman http://ipadeducators.ning.com/profiles/blogs/... The poetry performance was created using DoInk, a green screen and an iPad. First, the students wrote their poetry and then they created their art. They selected key words which they printed and then cut and pasted on green paper. The students took photos of their art and the words on green paper so that when using the DoInk Green Screen app they could replace the green backgrounds with their art. Then on another layer in the Green Screen app, they inserted photos of their words. Sam writes, "The end result is a wonderful poetry performance that extends the traditional writing project to include visual and presentation elements." We can't wait to see what your students create for National Poetry Month.

    Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano's blog details an example of how "Augmented Reality" was used in learning http://langwitches.org/blog/2014/03/25/augmen... In this case, "to expand the experience of visitors to (a) school’s Art Exhibit." This was accomplished using the Aurasma App (to learn about the artist) and the Green Screen by DoInk app. The Green Screen app enabled the picture of a painting to be inserted as a background and then the student was recorded in the foreground reflecting on the painting and on the artists' choices. The results were that "students were excited about sharing with an authentic audience and had to really recall and reflect...which was much more engaging than text." What a cool example of Augmented Reality used in learning.

    "Educational Technology and Mobile Learning" shared an interesting new "Bloom's Taxonomy Planning Kit for Teachers." http://www.educatorstechnology.com/2014/03/ne... We thought, like the article states, that it was a unique way to think about Bloom's Taxonomy in that it offers "a variety of key words, action verbs, outcomes and questions related to each of the thinking levels in the taxonomy."

    Lisa Pospishil, a fourth grade teacher from Nebraska blew us away this week with her phenomenal tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWAHxtpPp24&a... on "How to use the Green Screen by Do Ink app." It's a great resource for training students and teachers how to use our Green Screen app. Thanks, Lisa!

    Need to get away? What a long winter this has been. We were amused by the picture tweeted yesterday by educator @HiImpactSimon using our Green Screen app. The caption read, "@DoInkTweets #Greenscreen app takes us from stormy Birkenhead 2 sunny St Lucia! Great using green paper." Now to find our suntan oil.
