Thank you Erika, Remix is an excellent multimedia tool and resource for teachers and students.

When you have time be sure to check out my students interpretations of a Matchbox Twenty music video.

I posted a link to their media projects below the video...

"How Far We've Come"

Also check the Blog section of our arts in education MySpace for additional popular culture and history 3D projects and media literacy activities...

Learning From Lyrics

Look for the "Yes We Can" Blog, I asked my students to select a theme song or anthem for the Obama administration.
