-Student is to create a completely original edited video between 2-3 minutes long (visual poem, motivational video, highlight reel, etc).
-Student can use pre-existing footage (audio & video) but must be mixed and edited with other copyright free stock footage to create new video (fair use).
-Student will get acclimated to using video editing software and learning the tools, filters, elements, effects, and titles.
*These are a few of the excerpts from exceptional video editing projects*
I learned that by giving students a broader choice on project choices, they will seem to be more engaged by pursuing their interests to infuse in their projects. I learned that some students created visually engaging and thought provoking videos that helped me learn more about who they are as a person. I learned from a couple mistakes early on with this project and how to tweak this brand new lesson for next year to achieve even better results.
I was hoping to use this project to allow my students the ability to create a video that reflects who they are and what they feel. Sometimes learning about other perspectives means we have to see other perspectives.
I would have had them do more peer-reviews during the process. Sometimes running the video timeline by other people will allow other people’s perspectives to foster a more collaborative environment.
The range of variety that was shown by all my students!
