Sydney Sheren
Westhampton Beach School

I am a 9th grade student at Westhampton Beach High School. I created and ran the Middle School’s newsletter and am currently the Freshman class President. My passion for film making has led me to screen one of my movies at the local movie theater and to attend the New York Film Academy for the past two summers. I am inspired to teach others why technology is helpful and how they can easily use it to learn in a quick, easy, and fun way.

How to Help Your Visual Students Learn Using Movie Magic
In this presentation, we will be taking the under utilized application of iMovie and partnering it with other programs to make visual learning easily accessible in the classroom. By going beyond iMovie we are teaching students how to use many different programs that can work together to create educational films. Students of the technology age easily gravitate to computers and the mediums that you can create using them. Once a student learns how to use iMovie, they can easily learn other applications like Garageband.
