Updated 2/20/2015: An audio recording of my keynote is available as a YouTube video.
Media products created by students can provide a clearer, deeper and more helpful “window” into their minds. Teachers need to regularly invite students to “show what they know with media.” When students create and share content based on the curriculum, their learning can be “stickier” and more powerful. Blended learning classrooms allow teachers to better differentiate instruction to meet student needs. In this dynamic keynote, we will explore both the why and the how of “showing what you know with media.” This will include examples of engaging student media products teachers can invite students to create tomorrow!
- engage my audience
- showcase examples of student-created media projects
- encourage teachers to think about the benefits and value of having students “showing what they know with media”
I created a YouTube video playlist of the four student media projects I’m highlighting in my #latf15 Kahoot interactive quiz game.
Links to resources from the three breakout sessions I’ll be sharing later in the day Monday are available on my presentations / handouts wiki. They are:
