In this session, Victorian AEL Joel Aarons will go through various lessons and projects that he has taught from K-6. From first picking up an iPad in the first year of school to collaborating on a short film in Grade 6, Joel will show how his students have developed and consolidated their skills in the art of shooting and editing video. Projects in this session can easily be adapted for secondary school as well.
