'iSee, iCreate, iUnderstand: Video Projects that Strengthen Learning and Promote Digital Literacy'

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Discover simple ways to design student video projects that beef-up learning, actively engage students, and promote digital literacy. Independent and collaborative movie making projects encourage students to use creative thinking and problem-solving skills, as learners reflect on ways to share their personal research, knowledge, and stories. Like reading and math, digital literacy skills should be taught and used in every grade level, with a variety of content, to prepare students for a technology rich future.

In this session, participants will view examples of simple to elaborate student produced video using iPad apps and/or free computer software. They’ll get resources to share with learners about taking better photos and video, finding and adding copyright free music and sound, and examining techniques for effective video production.

Storyboards and rubrics will be shared to show their importance in successfully guiding learners. Participants will examine ways to create differentiated projects that are achievable yet challenging for learners of all skill levels. In addition, digital etiquette expectations will be reviewed.

By the end of this session, participants will not only have resources to share with students, but they will have clear-cut steps for incorporating simple to advanced, innovative video projects that inspire learners to learn more, develop robust digital literacy skills, and create projects that exceed teacher expectations.
