It seems that many students have access to tools for recording videos. Summer is a great time for them to develop their inner director/producer/writer. Here are some resources to inspire the future Oscar winners in your home or classroom:
- Project Ed – This post by Girish Gupta on “Getting Smart” gives a great overview of Project Ed, which sponsors educational video contests for movie makers who are 13 years and older.
- 5 Video Projects to Try with Your Students – Richard Byrne gives some excellent ideas, as well as great tools to use for creating and editing videos.
- 10 Ideas for Classroom Video Projects – This list from George Couros offers some unusual examples of videos that could be adapted for education, like the Kids Snippets series. (Some are better suited for older students.)
- Film and Video Lesson Ideas – One fun idea on this huge list is to create a silent movie. Have you ever tried Artistifier? Fun!
