Students Learning with Video Projects #EdtechMissions

In today’s #EdtechMissions chat we shared ideas for learning with video projects. We talked about the importance of storyboarding to plan their projects and learning how to edit. Students also need to learn how to properly remix and attribute Creative Commons content into their projects. In my book, Hacking Digital Learning Strategies: 10 Ways to Launch EdTech Missions, students learn these skills by completing missions to produce a newscast and create a video tutorial. You’ll find templates, handouts, resources, and assessment tools to help with each project. In the book, you can also find an example of this Mission in Action contributed by Jon Samuelson. Below, check out one of the several newscasts produced by the students in his district.
