Today we welcomed some potential students and parents to AAVN. Its not my ideal way to spend a Saturday, but I made an exception because coffee and snacks were provided. I think its an appropriate request of the administration to ask teachers to come in and do a mock lesson. Its part of what keeps students coming here. Its also the reason I get paid every month.
This was a really fun day to try something that our students learn on day one of film class and "wow" our incoming students and parents. We used the green screen app on an ipad to bring our guests to a UNESCO world heritage site in Vietnam. They chose Ha Long Bay and were amazed by the results. Its really a simple tool that does all the work. The app is for sale for $3 on the App store. I know people who refuse to ever pay for an app, but it does such a better job than the free versions. Kids in my social Studies class use this to recreate a dramatic scene in history or predict what the global issues of the future will be.
