** Using MovieMaking for education **

I was browsing through the blogosphere this afternoon while sitting out in my garden for the first time this year, the picture is just to show my friends in warmer climates that we can have good weather here in Wales too !!



In my meander through the blogs that I subscribe to thanks to bloglines I was reading what Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach was saying regarding the use of web 2.0 tools in education. Sheryl has looked at the work of Chris Harbeck ( a friend of all K12 online skypecast participants ) and his Un-Project for his High School pupils on fractions-showing a great use of a wiki for pupils work as well. Chris had set up the work to enable his pupils to use whatever media they wanted to present their work, one of his examples is a YouTube movie made by Max Weinstein and Chaz Portera on quadrilaterals it's a pretty cool way for students to present their work I think you will agree once you have watched it.

Paul I teach middle school students. They are in grade 8 and are 13 and 14. They are amazing though. The video is not mine but in the wiki spfractions.wikispaces.com

I had many students choose to use video in their project.

Thanks for reading and the comment.
Have a great Easter Weekend. Oh Yeah My spring was here.... now it is -22C with the wind chill.
