How I Use Star Wars in the Classroom

Other than embracing the power of being an adult geek and letting my students know that entering the world of geekdom is an acceptable pathway to a better life I try and slip Star Wars in where ever possible. It could be a motivational quote from Yoda or OB1. Within my ICT lessons there have been many examples. Most enjoyable and successful would be teaching foley art by dubbing over scenes from Star Wars - getting kids to make lightsaber noises and Wookie growls is highly entertaining - and using iPads to teach kids about special effects by App Smashing together an movie or animation app and then adding effects with Gun Movie FX and Saber FX.
