Session Outline

We will explore some of the possibilities of using a video camera with students in the classroom. This will include a practical demonstration on the use of chroma-key (green screen) technology. This is a technique where backgrounds can be altered with images or video to suit the nature of the video. This can be achieved simply and cheaply to enhance learning within the curriculum.

Here's the PowerPoint from my session at the conference
