Part of providing an effective learning opportunity includes capturing and celebrating the learning. There are numerous ways to do this. Lately, my favorite is Google Movies because it is a fast, fun, and easy way to document events.

Here's what you do.

During the event:

  • Take photos 
  • Record videos

After the event:

  • Go to Google Assistant on your phone
  • Tap "Movie"
  • Select photos and videos you want to feature
  • Tap "Create"


You've made a movie. Google will pick the filter and music, but you can always go back to edit and select your own filter or music. 

Here are movies I've recently created:

#NYCSchoolsTech Educators Hit The MakerEd Forum

Saturday Learning: Common Sense Digital Citizenship

What do you think? Do any of my movies inspire you? Is this something you might try using to capture the learning at your next event, workshop or learning activity? How could you get students involved? What else do you think is possible?
