Literacy Tech Fest: Create Amazing Green Screen Videos With TouchCast

I'm excited to be presenting at my district's Literacy Tech Fest again this year and to see all of the innovative uses of iPads in the Literacy classroom that teachers, coaches, and specialists will be sharing.
A simple green screen and the free TouchCast iPad app are guaranteed to engage students and have them lining up to finish research projects and book reports to broadcast their learning to the world. Create a green screen station and use QR codes to make sharing videos a snap.
