The #vidstory project is coming to a close as we reach the end of term.
I am sure that the ripples that drift across the 'cloud' will continue for some time.
Students can share their videos with their peers.
Comments will be left and hopefully positive relationships will develop.
Confidence, identity and self expression will all be nurtured and not stifled.
There are questions about Copyright, I prefer copyleft and Creative Commons who provide free licenses for creative types who want to keep some form of Copyright.
If there are any discrepancies in the videos publish I will rectify them however as I am not making any commercial gain and using the media for educational purposes I find it difficult to position myself with current legislation. Please read this http://bit.ly/iDbgV0 a very useful do's and don'ts list of Copyright.
I have been away from Blogger and Twitter for some time, enjoying life with my 2 beautiful daughters and my wife. When I watch the videos my students make I realise my good fortune to be who I am and where I am in this world. Work-Life balance is always a tricky game to play.
Any comments would be welcome and would also encourage me in my exploration of this topic. It would also be great to get feedback on the #vidstory project or any other aspect of the blog =)
I must thank @web2Literacy for his support and invite you to join myLIFE - migrant young Learners In Formal Education , if you are making videos with young migrants and wish to promote their work to a wider, supportive online community.
