It is really hard to keep up with all of the technology that students are talking about these days, but I have heard a few things being talked about regularly.
YouTube seems to be the big trend still. I have a ton of students (young men especially) that spend a lot of time making and posting videos on YouTube. They are constantly working there creativity to make the next spoof or comedy sequence.
I have also heard the word video mash being thrown around. I am not sure if that is the technical term for it, but it sort of reminds me of the Disney plagiarism video we watched last meeting. I thing the basic idea is that you take two different video or sound choices and mesh them together. Here is a youtube example of one of my favorite songs paired with a classic: Every Car You Chase.
I asked some kids for their opinions and I got a wide variety of answers. Students said that they get sick of PowerPoint's all of the time (this might be because I have spent the last two days dynamically using PowerPoint to teach some very boring subjects.) They said they would love to have the opportunity to make movies or videos for class more often. I would love to incorporate this more in class but there is such a divide among students and resources and I would hate to make that divide bigger. I would love to hear about how people have used video in their classes.
