Things are going CRAZY around our school! It seems that the walls are talking, hats are coming to life, and toys are singing. We never know what will sprout eyes and a voice to send a message.

The intent in creating these videos is to motivate students to learn! I took digital photos around our school - paintings, projects, and toys on shelves and then made the videos. Videos were created with animation and audio editing software. Students chose from a range of topics, wrote scripts, and recorded/edited sound files. With each edit, students listened to and improved their own work. Examples on these pages are provided to spark ideas of how to use videos to support learning in many areas. Help us compile ideas for all to share!
