I just ran across a couple of really good resources from PBS Teachers that I wanted to mention here. Here’s the first one.
May 1, 2008 – This month’s Media Infusion blogger, secondary school educator and filmmaker Joe Fatheree, looks at digital storytelling as a means to create independent learners, promote collaboration, improve research and writing skills, and educate the whole child. Fatheree takes readers through a step-by-step process of filmmaking that can be adapted for use in many contexts with students of varying ages.
“Technology has given us the ability to connect curriculum with the real world, and allow our students to step outside the boundaries of traditional classroom setting,” writes Fatheree.
PBS Teachers invites educators to visit Media Infusion in May and ask questions, comment on Fatheree’s suggestions or offer some of their own.
