WeVideo, Video Creation and Editing
We will look at the main functions of WeVideo, as well as discuss how it can be used by students. Topics include starting a project, starting an edit, importing content, cutting clips, greenscreen and other editing features. Users can be brand new to WeVideo or can be a current user with not too much familiarity. If you have no account, or a personal account, I will be leading the group in joining our district subscription. As a classroom teacher you would use the same process with your students if you want them to use the resource.

Turing Tumble Elementary
Turing Tumble is a relatively new game that works on the same principal as much older computers, with mechanical switches. Current technology also uses the idea of switches to operate, just not mechanical. What we do will depend a bit on what games we are able to get. Many of our buildings have received (or will soon) this game. If we borrow some unopened then we'll go through the unpacking, assembly and re-packing, as well as allow time for you to try a few challenges and understand the manual and how the game works. That would take about an hour. If we borrow games that are already assembled, then there will be more time for challenges. I can almost guarantee that you will enjoy this. Ideally we will have 1 person per game, or at most 2.
