Make iPad Videos that Tell Your Story

Turn your iPad into a moviemaking machine!  Learn to shoot, edit and share stories about the great things you do with your community.  Gain confidence to create simple and effective video projects, from start to finish, that people will want to watch.

It was a great workshop. Time very well spent. I don’t think I have ever learned more in two days! — a recent workshop participant


During this workshop you will:

  • Receive hands-on training and personal attention from our two instructors
  • Learn basic video-production techniques including framing, troubleshooting, audio, and editing
  • Learn to use tools like microphones and tripods
  • Work in small teams to create short projects including how-to and promotional videos
  • Learn about free and low-cost resources for equipment, consultation, instruction and distribution

We will guide you through the process of producing engaging videos. Discover how easy it is to make creative, high-quality videos with your iPad. Educators who take this workshop will also learn 21st century team skills and strategies for teaching students in communication, research and media skills in the Common Core. 

This workshop was a perfect introduction to video making. It gave me, a novice, the skills to feel confident in creating my own videos! a recent workshop participant
