Interactive Whiteboard as a Green Screen

This is something cool to give a try. With the growing number of interactive whiteboards that are showing up in classrooms teachers are finding more creative ways to use them. While playing around one day, I found that the IWB can be used as a green screen. All you have to do is create a new page, pick the closest color to lime that you can find. Fill the whole page with this color and switch to full screen mode.

Be sure that you stay out of the way of your projector or your body parts may disappear in the middle of your movie.

This is a great way to take your classroom video’s to a new level. Give it a shot! For ideas for green screen’s in the classroom take a look at this page.

For chroma keying tutorials (MAC) take a look at this.

Also for a good quality and cheap camera take a look at “Digital Wish

How are you going to use this in your classroom?

 

Thanks
