Be a Part of Your Storytelling - Keynote Live Video

Last year, I got to be a part of helping our 8th grade Reading department use Keynote to show learning. These teachers had students write summaries and predictions about events and characters from in-class texts. Students were then tasked with creating a setting using Keynote's shapes and using animated shapes and drawings to add visual aids while reading their short essays aloud. The best part was that students also used Keynote Live Video to insert themselves into the setting and become a part of their own storytelling!

Here is an exemplar video I helped make to show students.

While this particular example is for RLA, there are so many ways this project can be translated to history, science, math, and other content areas. I'm looking forward to our RLA teachers implementing and adding on to this project again this year! #wearelcp

Great job mixing the shapes with the video in the background. So many ways that this could be done - I like how it was used it for a book review!
