What ways do you use video projects with your students?

When students are involved in hands-on, project-based learning, they must use higher level thinking skills.  One of the 21st century learning skills is innovation and creativity.  What better way for students to show their creativity than to create video projects.  There are many online resources and mobile apps for making videos.


As you consider planning video projects for your students, I recommend reading Richard Byrne's blog post--"Questions to Ask When Planning Video Projects" in Free Technology for Teachers (March 6, 2013).  He also provides ideas for student video projects and tools for creating the videos in his post--"Best of the Summer - Video Projects"--from 2012.


In addition, Byrne considers methods for assessing video projects in his blog post--"Questions to Consider While Assessing Video Projects"--in Free Technology for Teachers (March 6, 2013).  He outlines 9 Common Core Standards that can be addressed through video projects.


You may want to use a Thinkfinity lesson idea from ReadWriteThink--MyTube: Make a Video Public Service Announcement--for grades 7 to 12 that gives students an opportunity to explore issues that are important to them, and then write a script and film a video public service announcement.

Are there video projects and/or tools you recommend to use with students?
