a.k.a. anything not Google

This term I am contributing to the Manaiakalani Digital Teacher Academy (MDTA) Digital Immersion PLG every Friday. Our focus for this term is 'create' via a different digital medium each week. I am enjoying supporting our Beginning Teachers plus appreciating the opportunity to learn and create via media I don't use everyday... a.k.a. anything not Google ;-)

Last week's challenge... create a short film to share learning during the past week, edited in iMovie. Each day we filmed short snippets to provide us with the raw video to edit on Friday.

I have used many iterations of iMovie over the past 10 years and valued this time to edit and explore some of the features I was not familiar with. Bonus... learnt lots from my MDTA colleagues in the process e.g. split screen thanks  +Georgia Dougherty

Thanks also to the learners in the schools I spend my week with Stonefields, Ruapotaka, Te Kura Kaupapa Maori O Puau Te Moananui A Kiwa, Sommerville Special School. Bring on this year's Manaiakalani Film Festival.

If anyone can tell me how to stop my playhead skipping back to the beginning of my timeline when editing, I'd appreciate a comment below. Thanks
