52 Tools to Inspire Summer Learning with Photo and Video Challenges

“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.” – Marc Riboud

Many of us have started our breaks. If you have a website, blog, virtual learning site or messaging system like Remind to connect with your learners then you can motivate your students to continue the learning with photo and video challenges. Learners of all ages love taking pictures and videos, especially with their mobile devices. Students are surrounded by science, math, geography, history, and literacy. Often, they just need to be challenged to take a closer look, investigate their surroundings, capture their learning, and present it to others. For any subject you can send your students on learning missions and challenges to capture the learning around them and demonstrate to others what they have learned! This summer I will be publishing my new book, Hacking Digital Learning Strategies: 10 Ways to Launch EdTech Missions in Your Classroom, which describes the process of teaching with learning missions in more detail. To encourage students further give them a badge for completing each challenge.

  1. Hi Shelly,

    I’m trying to download windows movie maker to make a video with my kids as part of their summer project, but you didn’t provide a link to it 🙁

    I googled it and found it on this site http://www.windows-movie-maker.org/, but it requires a payment which I find odd. Do you know where I can download it for free?

    Thanks for this blog – lots of great ideas!
