How do we inspire students to demonstrate both creativity and critical thinking? Kick up video production notch by encouraging augmentation - the careful addition of the “meta”. In this hands-on presentation/ workshop we’ll be exploring Web tools and apps that allow students to add rich layers to their visual and audio creations. Augmentation with external links, multi-media, and hypertext makes both original work and appropriated resources more “meaty”. Most tools allow for remix, collaboration, and crowdsourcing as well, so that students may hone key “21st century skills”. Experience each through play and experimentation, and showcase at least two of your creations with our group. How do we embrace the #showyourwork movement and ask students to demonstrate their design thinking processes and troubleshooting strategies, contributing to collective knowledge? These techniques are highly adaptable and applicable to almost any age and discipline. Tools used include: Popcornmaker, TED Ed, Weavly, YouTube, Thinglink, Soundcloud, and Touchcast
