Technology in the Classroom: Creating Videos Can Lead Students to Many Academic Benefits
Morgan, Hani
Childhood Education, v89 n1 p51-53 2013
Assigning students projects involving video production can lead to many positive academic outcomes, and today more opportunities exist for educators to incorporate such video-oriented projects into their classroom practice. Video-making technology is more affordable, more user-friendly, and more powerful than ever before. This article discusses how student-created video projects can enhance motivation, multimodal literacy, problem-solving skills, and content knowledge. Readers will also find examples of video-making activities teachers can implement for students--ranging from primary school to middle school--and a discussion of some obstacles instructors can encounter when attempting to use these kinds of projects.
