At our campus, we just finished a large photostory/movie project with our junior classes. Students were reading The Things They Carried, and were given a name from the Vietnam Wall. Each student researched what they could about the soldier's life or service in Vietnam, and with the help of our campus tech coordinator and myself(librarian) created a photostory, moviemaker or iMovie about the soldier.
The videos are available for viewing and I also wrote about the process here.
We'd be interested in feedback or comments!
There were a lot of challenges involved in getting this many projects completed(over 300 at once) and online. We were particularly trying to work with students on the idea of audience and that these videos would be on the web as a memorial that family members could eventually visit.
We learned some things about how to do this effectively next year,
Input is appreciated!
