Activity #1 - In groups of two, break up and each person should take about 10 minutes to setup the Apple TV.  Be sure to name it accordingly. Airplay some apps to your Apple TV. 

Activity #2 - From the desktop computers in the room, search for playing content to the AppleTV through HomeSharing (must be turned on for both the AppleTV and the computer you're on. 

Activity #3 - Use either Keynote or PowerPoint to create a movie of event happening at your school or place of work.  Export as movie and then add to iTunes Library. Don't forget to edit the properties of the file to categorize it accordingly. 

Activity #4 - Explore some resources out on the web, and create a playlist that contains a couple of different versions of media (podcasts, movies, audio, etc). 

Activity #5 - There are bunch of great apps out there that let you create content. Grab one of these free apps (I recommend Screen chomp) to record a short video of a projects for your class that you can use later on.  With Screenchomp, you can download as an MP4 and then import into your iTunes library!
