Chroma Key or "green screening" is a technique by which a block of a particular color (often blue or green) in a video image can be replaced either by another color or image, enabling, for example, a weather forecaster to appear against a background of a computer-generated weather map. We have found that this type of video recording is extremely popular with our students and highly engaging when connected with key concepts and ideas being explored in the classroom. Participants in this workshop will learn the purpose of “green screening” (chroma keying) with K-12 students and the engagement and learning it sparks! Imagine immersing your students in a virtual field trip around the globe or reenacting a scene from a novel, where the student becomes an important character, taking on the body language, accent and demeanor of that person. The possibilities are endless! Cross-curricular ideas for green screening in the K-12 classroom will be provided, along with many student examples and support in setting up a green screen space. You will learn the basics of proper lighting and video recording with iOS devices.
