For too long video production has been trapped in exclusive media clubs, when it offers perhaps the greatest opportunity to enrapture students across learning styles, curriculum and age levels. In this video entry I discuss the concept of the Digital Video Quilt and how it can be used across grades and curricula to not only introduce the basics of DV but to investigate key concepts and end up with a product! With one cam, one internet connection and one innovative teacher your class can be producing stellar commercials, PSAs and Movie Trailers in no time!
Editor’s note: for those of you in California, don’t forget to enter your students’ projects (for FREE!) in the California Student Media Festival, the nation’s oldest festival celebrating student creativity!
