Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Participants will be introduced to a series of green screen lessons that will help them creatively engage their students in their content areas.

I will provide an overview of each lesson with technical information to inform participants about classroom implementations.

I will provide digital detailed resources for each of the lessons discussed.


I will spend 5-7 minutes on each of the lessons repeating this format:
-connect with content
-tools needed
-tips for implementation

This process would continue until the 40 minute mark.
There would be 5 minutes for Q & A in the chat.
