Integrating video projects into the classroom can be as simple or complex as you want. Just grab a phone, digital camera or tablet and your students are on their way.

Here are some video project ideas, divided into ideas for any classroom and ideas for specific subject areas:

These look like great ideas to encourage media literacy as well. You have to understand media from the inside to create media. Nothing makes you more media literate then learning to create it.

The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, January 7, 3:14 AM


Mike Vogel:  "State of Syn isn’t an ordinary series. There are episodes with a stylistic approach that feels more like a video game than a webseries, a mobile app where you unlock puzzles, and a Google Glass app currently in development."

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, January 7, 1:34 PM

Whether or not State of Syn succeeds commercially or critically, they should get kudos for pushing boundaries of multi-sensory #transmedia #storytelling and helping people think differently about integrating technology such as Google Glass.  Efforts like this emphasize #AR apps and wearable technology as a rich form of experience instead of creepy privacy violation. In this case, the game mechanics do not tie directly to the series.  The Google Glass is more of a "parallel play" experience linking narrative with gaming.  One app (for $) creates a “synesthesia” layer – the same trait held by the show’s lead protagonist Annika Drake.  (I've always wanted to know what it was like to taste music and see feelings.)  This should light a fire under other innovators to get creative!  Can't wait to see what happens.

The Complete Über-Geek's Guide to Reading Online

The Complete Über-Geek's Guide to Reading Online | Frankly EdTech | Scoop.it

"Healthy online reading habits require constant gardening. Every Internet company provides us a little plot to tend for, and that’s how they keep our attention where they want it. But the soil is pretty gross in most of them, and the seeds are tightly regulated. If we want to read healthily, we have to build our own info gardens.

The most important gardening task is deciding what to plant — that is, what sources to read — and that’s a personal choice. The topics, tone, and perspective of your information sources are for you to determine. But the bulk of the work is in building and tending the garden, and this guide will suggest some tools and methods to help. And with the gardening work out of the way, you’ll spend most of your time cooking, eating, and sharing. That’s the delicious part, and this guide will offer my best recipes."

This scoop it profile by @Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa)  includes many useful blogs and articles that aim to teach in the 21st century. This includes learning with the use of technology. What he refers to as the 'iGeneration' includes many useful updates that can be used for both the students and teachers in the classroom. A few i came across that sparked my interest were a description on how to set up a blog with wordpress for teachers, this can be very useful to me as a student now and also in the future. I enjoy D'Amico's profile as he scoops quite interesting topics.

How Digital Learning is Becoming the Fourth Literacy

I think digital literacy will become just as important as reading, writing and maths. When will it become more important, is the question? Will reading, writing and math be taught by teaching code? I look forward to seeing what happens during my career in education.

17 Fun Tools To Teach Kids To Code

17 Fun Tools To Teach Kids To Code | Frankly EdTech | Scoop.it

There are many benefits to teaching young people to code.   As a musician starts learning a piece of music,  the process can be daunting.   Musicians, however, naturally start breaking the song into parts.   By slowly mastering small phrases, scales, chords, and patterns, the song slowly emerges from the student.   The discipline of decomposition and persistence shows up in computer programming too.
