Mostly, the kids designed plays or other performances to show what they had learned. They love it and by the end of the year most knew more about Windows Movie Maker than I do. Its the obvious usage but it was still a great way to integrate tech and engage them. Sign in to vote!

They're creating news reports, rap songs, poems, and skits. They absolutely LOVE the camera and, since they really want to create a good presentation, are giving me their best work. I haven't used any video editing yet, but that's next on the agenda. Sign in to vote!

They LOVE filming them and are super serious which makes them all the better! Sign in to vote! Posted 12/16/2010 12:53pm Frank Noschese I'm a high school physics teacher. I've used Flips to have kids record their physics labs, record problem solving, and record demos. By videoing the labs and problems, students have to explain all their steps (which they might not do on paper). We record demos that might happen too fast to see, or that might not be repeatable. We can the watch the demo over and over, frame-by-frame, and discuss the salient points. I'm sure many of these ideas are applicable to all grade levels! Sign in to vote!
