The ThemeSpark™ free web-based teacher tool was designed by former teacher David Hunter. The creator of the innovative Zombie-Based Learning curriculum, he founded our parent company EdCourage, Inc. to offer powerful teacher tools that easily add Authentic Learning to standards-based curriculum. David will be presenting on this topic at ASCD15 in Houston.

I set up an account and built a 21st Century Skills Collaboration rubric based on Common Core in less than a minute. Very clever. You can combine standards from different tracks and them share via web address or social media or download. 


This product delivers.  Give it a try.

Designing Media-Based Assignments

Designing Media-Based Assignments | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
This website helps college teachers develop, deliver, and assess assignments incorporating images, video, and sound.


Beth Dichter's insight:

This website from the University Notre Dame provides great resources to help you embrace media-rich experiences for your students. The site currently has 24 projects which you may explore. Each project includes:

* A brief explanation

* Samples of projects

* Resources to help you learn how to make the projects

* Rubrics

The projects listed include: video story project, infographics, academic poster, book trailer, geographic map and many more.

Although this website was designed for college teachers the resources and ideas are useful for any teacher whom would to incorporate more media-based assignment in their classroom.
