Making a Digital Jumpstart:
  • We recommend easy-to-use software such as iMovie or PhotoStory
  • First, decide on a basic design or ‘script’ for your digital jumpstart
  • Next, take photos (or use photos from Google Images, Flickr, etc.) for your movie and upload them. You can also scan and upload other documents or videos as needed depending on the topic you are covering
  • After uploading all images/videos, you can record dialogue on images as desired and/or upload music for your digital jumpstart
  • Finally, add vocabulary words or other text on your images
  • Creating a digital jumpstart is easy and you are only limited by your imagination!
