Creating Movies for your Class

Currently, I’m teaching DH 226, Ethics and Law in Dental Hygiene. The students enjoy the case studies and debating issues in class; it can actually get pretty heated sometimes! Even though they like the interactive part of the class, I’ve found that they have a hard time grasping the three theories of ethics. So, one day I decided to make a video that would simplify the theories for them. It was a big hit!

The video was easy to make. First, I decided on a theme and planned the movie script and story board. I used Paint to draw each slide (they’re stick figures), then imported the images (in order- VERY important!) to Windows MovieMaker. I imported a song for the background, and completed the voiceover with my family. With MovieMaker, edits are easy and you can add credits at the end. It was a fun project, and now I use it every time I teach the class. Take a look at mine and give it a try!

I'm a Curriculum Specialist, Dental Hygienist, and Goldendoodle breeder. I want to share my passions with others so we can collaborate. I have an A.S. and a B.S. in Dental Hygiene, and a Master's in Education with a focus on Digital Learning. I have a passion for Goldendoodles, and have taken courses in breeding and genetics through AKC. I'm also a member of GANA. I have an amazing husband and three kids: Matt, Chloe, and Silas. I also have 3 dogs and a cat. Definitely a full house! When I'm not editing curriculum or fighting plaque and gingivitis, I like to hang out with friends and family (a little BBQ here and there), garden, play with the kiddos and my dogs, travel, and remodel our house (a never-ending project!). Most of all, I love to learn and share ideas. Thanks for stopping by!
