DoInk: Green Screen App: Ecosystem

3rd graders at one of my schools, created videos using the app, DoInk Green Screen on the topic of Ecosystems. (Note: DoInk is a paid app ($2.99) but well worth the price!)

The students learned how energy flows through an ecosystem and how changes to the ecosystem affect both plants and animals within the ecosystem. For their project, students were in groups of 4 and chose the following job; producer, editor, reporter and camera person. Together they brainstormed a place, an event that would change the ecosystem, and how it affected the plants and/or animals there. Students worked collaboratively to create an idea and wrote a script to produce into a broadcast.

Jazz Up Your Email Signature Line





Want to Jazz Up your school or personal email signature line? 
I am passing along this awesome site from Jim Frye, USEVS Technology Director! Thanks JIM! 
If you'd like to enhance your signature line, here's the process:
  1. Open a new tab and go to:  https://newoldstamp.com/editor/
  2. Fill in the information in the left column you want in your signature line.  You can upload a pic or avatar of your choice.  You can change layout/template on the right side column names.
  3. Click Save.
  4. Choose email type- example: "Gmail" from available email programs.
  5. Click "Select" to highlight all data, then command key+C to copy. (I removed the "get signature like this!" before I copied).
  6. Now, go back to Mail > Settings (under the gear icon) > Signature and remove any signature data you may in there now, and, then paste your newly created signature.  Make sure the box is checked underneath to "Insert this signature before quoted text in replies and remove the "--" line that precedes it."
  7. Save.  If you want more spacing, you can go back to Settings > Signature and move the signature down a line or two and resave.
