Getting Started with Using Green Screen Technology in the Classroom

Getting Started with Using Green Screen Technology in the Classroom

Learn how you can get started with using green screen technology in your classroom. Lots of low budget options, apps, and software are shared!
This past week I teamed up with Anita from Goodwinnovate and Danielle from Study All Knight to talk about how teachers can easily bring green screen into the classroom. We had so much fun!

If you are not familiar with green screen or have been wondering where to start, check out our video that is embedded at the bottom of this post.

☝As stated in the video, you don't even have to purchase a background! Check out what this clever educator did just by projecting a chroma key compatible color.

Apps/Software

In the video below we talk about the different kinds of apps/software that have green screen capability. There are SO many out there! The ones we mentioned are ones that I have successfully used with elementary students. This doesn't mean that other apps/software aren't viable. The DoInk app wins the green heart because it is easy to use, student friendly and never lets us down. We are still on the hunt for a good green screen app for Android. If you know of one, PLEASE let us know in the comments below! Update! Miguel Guhlin tweeted that we could find green screen apps for Android HERE. Check it out along with other wonderful ideas for using green screen in the classroom!


Assessment

Many teachers I work with like to use rubrics to assess their students' green screen projects. HERE is a FREE grading rubric from Mr. Minger's Weebly site. If you would rather create your own categories, then you might be interested in my Editable Grading Rubrics below. These are nice because you can use them over and over again for ANY project! Low prep!
