The New and Improved iMovie for iPad [TUTORIAL]

With the recent release of the new version of iMovie, my colleague Matt Przybylski (tech coordinator at our school) created this presentation for part two of our iPad workshop series. (Check out part one, iPad filming tips here)

iMovie ($4.99, or free on new iOS devices) has gone from a good movie-making app with limited features to a very solid creation tool. Many new features have been added that make iMovie an excellent app for both teachers to create videos for teaching, and also students to create projects. Our staff was excited to learn the new features, and I am anticipating many new videos made by them and our students in the near future.

Matt and I look forward to organizing more iPad workshops in the near future. They will be various workshops ranging from iPad basics, iWork, and class iPad projects. If you are in the Lower Mainland (Vancouver, Canada) and are interested, please contact us by leaving a comment here. We would be happy to come to your school!

Follow me and Matt on Twitter.

Have you tried out the new features on iMovie? Please let us know what you think in the comments!

    If you are looking to do movies with iPads in your classroom, look no further!

  2. Oh no! Something’s up with the embedded Google Doc, not able to view the tutorial. Hope you will be able to fix, and thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks for letting me know. I’ll take a look tonight.

    2. Kelli,
      I’ve tried it on my iPhone and my PC laptop. No problems on either. Unfortunately people are not going to be able to download it, but just view it.

      1. Too bad. It is still not displaying for me. Thanks for trying!

      2. If you’d like a PDF copy, I can email it. Send me an email at

    I’d love to be able to show your tutorial as part of a training for a class I’m teaching in our district. Would you be willing to share the original google Slides to me?
