Personal Perspectives: Using Multimedia to Express Cultural Identity
Carroll, David; Carney, Joanne
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v4 n4 p465-488 2005
The Personal Perspectives multimedia project described in this article engages teacher candidates in examining and representing their cultural identity by means of Apple's iMovie software. This digital storytelling project was developed by the authors, who are instructors in elementary education and instructional technology at a state university whose college of education strongly emphasizes intercultural education. The paper begins with a project overview, then explains how the project is scaffolded in each course--providing downloadable pdf files of task sheets and student work. A discussion follows of the benefits and challenges of a cross-course multimedia project of this type, citing feedback received from students.
