    • Digital Video & Media to Enhance LiteracyDennis Barry’s WoW ProjectED 5670 – Literacy & Technology
    • Back in the Day
      The days of wheeling this monstrosity from classroom to classroom are over
      Digital technology has created opportunities in classrooms that were once thought impossible
    • The New Digital Frontier
    • Why Digital Video?
      • Get students energized and engaged in hands-on learning experiences
      • The perfect medium for students who are auditory or visual learners
      • Taps into emotions which stimulate and enthrall students
    • Effectively Using Video
      • Research shows using digital video as an enhancement to a lesson is the most effective method
      • Specific learning objectives should be determined, an instructional sequence should be developed and reinforcement activities planned
    • Back in the Day
      Huge component systems to complete even the most simple editing tasks
      Completely impractical in a classroom setting
      Expensive $$$
    • Not Just Watching… Creating!
      Improve the School-to-Home Connection
      A third-grade teacher at Village School in Pacific Palisades, California, recorded his students explaining to their parents how to play a math game. Now their parents can play the same game at home. A music teacher at the school captures snippets of students to include in a video he sends to parents in lieu of a printed newsletter.
      Produce PSAs, Skits, and more…
      The broadcasting crew at Benefield Elementary School in Lawrenceville, Georgia, records public-service announcements for the school’s live morning show. Sometimes they perform short skits that focus on vocabulary, wordplay, and idioms, says technology teacher Karen Hartung.
    • Not Just Watching… Creating!
      Create Slide Shows
      Mary Williams’s chemistry students at St. Mary’s High School in Colorado Springs, Colorado, use Animoto (www.animoto.com), a free site that produces video pieces from phones, video clips, and music, to make 90-second (or longer) slide shows about the elements in the periodic table.
      Record Students
      Becky Goerend, a sixth-grade teacher at Earlham Elementary in Iowa, records student responses to their independent-reading assignments. “In the past they would write their thoughts in a notebook. Now they can share them verbally,” says Goerend. “It’s a simple thing, but technology motivates. I have a closet in my classroom that I use as the recording booth.”
