More Media in the Classroom

Description:
Audio and video clips can add a lot to classroom instruction. Additionally, when students are the creators of multimedia, engagement and motivation can often improve. Learn how to best utilize Discovery Education Streaming along with VoiceThread and possibly Flip Video Cameras to include more media projects in your classroom. Integration can be as simple as incorporating more clips from a teacher created library or something more elaborate such as monthly student video podcasts.
