Makes sense. The more we include parents in the education of their children the more social capital the children build. The question is not whether parents being involved is good. We need to figure out what that looks like in the digital world.

10 Ideas for Classroom Video Projects | open thinking

10 Ideas for Classroom Video Projects | open thinking | Worth Following | Scoop.it

This is a blog post from Dr. Alec Couros @courosa outlining (with examples) 10 ideas for different classroom video projects. I like the ideas but as someone with almost no video creation skills or experience I can't comment on the level of video skills required...however I agree with the principle of students moving from being video consumers to video producers.

 

Thanks to @easegill (Nigel Robertson) from the WCEL unit at the University of Waikato for this link.
