If you have been thinking about how to integrate video into your class or school, this is the session for you. We will discuss and create videos using Google Hangouts, YouTube, and WeVideo. You will also learn about free Teleprompters that work on Chromebooks! We will also show you some new emerging tech like 360 Cameras and drones.

Once familiar with the tools, you will learn about how we created a video network at Winneconne and North Fond du Lac using YouTube including, daily announcements, weekly shows, student projects, district projects, live broadcasts of elementary book shares, and live broadcasts of some school sports (we even have commentators!). Most of the tools we have used are free and available to everyone! Come learn about video creation in a collaborative session that will help jumpstart you and your school with video production!
