Celebrate Kansas Voices; Teaching During the 70's and 80's in Kansas: An Interview with Nacy Sampson
For my Celebrate Kansas Voices project I chose to interview my grandma who was an elementary school teacher in the 1970s and 1980s. My grandma Nancy Sampson, also attended Kansas State University like I am currently doing to get her degree in elementary education. I thought that it would be interesting to hear about her experiences going to K-State and teaching elementary school. I was able to make comparisons with what she told me about her education and what it was like to be an elementary school teacher. This was a really interesting project that helped me to learn more about how it was like when my grandma was teaching. When I asked her about participating in this project she was more than happy to help me.
I used iMovie to create the video and I did most of my editing within the app. My first step was to record the interview which I did on iMovie. My grandma requested to not be video recorded, I recorded only her voice using iMovie. I also used the app Canva in order to make a title slide and an ending slide for the video to help introduced and conclude it. Another app I used was Pic Collage, I used this app to resize my pictures to make sure that they fit appropriately on iMovie. iMovie can be somewhat picky with the sizing of pictures, most of my pictures are not the right size so they only show part of the picture or a really close up part. Which is why I used Pic Collage to make the picture smaller so that the whole picture could be viewed on iMovie. I also used the YouTube Capture app in order to upload the video I made on iMovie to YouTube.
Celebrate Kansas Voices project is a great project that helps to connect people to our states history. I am glad that I was able to be a part of it while also learning more about my family history.
