I was introduced to microTrend’s “What’s Your Story?” contest via one of my Diigo groups – Digital Citizenship in Schools this past week. It was exciting to see this yearly video contest (for students aged 13+) that highlights creative, impactful and safe and responsible ways to interact online. Not only is digital citizenship an important topic in schools today, but to have opportunities to see and hear some innovative ways that students relate/connect to it is fantastic.
Don’t wait for the individual or school entries to be shown, try this with your students right now in the classroom. Have them create a video(s) using the same specifications found in the More Details section.
Develop some criteria on what would make an effective video? Should it be creative? Memorable?
I think one of this year’s participants really has nailed it! What do you think? Could you do better? How?
