iMovie Tuturorial- Tech Tuesdays

I've started Tech (Mex) Tuesdays here at school. I bring snacks and prepare lessons on tech use for teachers who want some free professional development. I've hardly had overflow crowds. The few who do come, however, get plenty of individualized attention. The past two weeks I have given tutorials on iMovie and its use.

When making tech presentations to my faculty, I try to add something else- a freebie lesson. So, this week, I made an emaze.com presenation showing some of the uses of iMovie.

Here's my announcement to our faculty... by popular demand I offered iMovie twice.
