    If you would like to work on recording video, there are multiple options. Students can bring in a phone, record, and if necessary use something like iMovie to edit.  Can upload to YouTube for you to show to the class.  They could also use a video recording camera at school.  They can then upload it to their Google Drive on the Chromebook after plugging in the camera with a USB, and then retrieve it at home if they want to use editing software like Movie Maker.  Then they can bring in the final on thumb drive or can try to upload back to Google Drive. Or, you can use a Desktop computer in the library and edit in Movie Maker here at school.

    You can also try to use a Google add-on called We Video that can capture video with the Chromebook camera. The problem is that you have to do the skit in front of the Chromebook to record.

    Video editing tool: Typito

    You can edit video and add text over the top. Here is an article explaining the program and the Typito website. You can do a free trial period and make all of the videos you want, then after you can have a free account--with the Typito logo--if you are not paying.
