Take a look at the Gaia showcase and you will see that we are absolutely committed to helping schools with the creative use of video. In our studio, we use industry standard video editing tools from Adobe but we realise that, for schools, having simple to use video editing software is absolutely critical. Especially important is the capacity to handle chromakey or screen video production. Additionally, teachers face challenges when sharing clips with a group or interfacing with online storage services. We have been appraising products for sometime now and have settled on WeVideo as our product of choice. This easy to use video editor is web-based and so you can work on any device. It is fully integrated with a range of cloud services, and together with its group management tools, makes sharing both the resources you are working with and the final products seamless. You have great control but can learn how to use the online software very quickly.
You can use WeVideo to teach pupils about video production and to let them showcase their work digitally. Teachers can use WeVideo to make interesting teaching materials or produce video-based revision guides. In the latter case combining use of screen capture software and green screen techniques.
So impressed are we that Gaia has entered into a partnership with WeVideo and we have a full demonstration account which we can use with you as part of a training session or student project. Gaia’s expert CPD professionals can work with you to trial use of WeVideo, plan its adoption across the curriculum and support initial projects.
Get in touch today and we will help you take first steps to routine use of video as a tool for showcasing your pupils learning.
