Video Stories - MisterMike
This video has been made to encourage my students to consider making their own videos using WindowsMovieMaker.
The idea is that students can use photos or images from the web.
The images should say something about them.
There will be options to add text, animations and transition effects.
Students can choose to cover their experiences, identity, neighbourhood, home etc.
If you like the idea, why not make a video too and post a link here (via comments box).
It would be great to have a bank of videos that students could try and guess who the authors were.
Match a photo of the author to the anonymous video :o)
Why are we doing this?
I am currently supporting a group of 16-18 year old ESOL students.
I want to give them a voice. With that voice they can express their views about different topics.
I want them to reflect upon their identities.
For some, they may be facing an uncertain future. Check out this post that tells you more - http://mistermikelcc.blogspot.com/2011/03/what-did-you-do-for-your-18th-birthday.html
These videos may help them to connect with other young people in the country who are in a similar position.
