This is not just a video project, it is much more! The integration of multimedia technology and teaching of the common core content merge in project based learning.
During the 2013 Kentucky Space Movie Project at Morehead State University, student teams from around the area participate in the first four steps of creating a video documentary. This video illustrates how the common core, teaching strategies, integration of technology, multidisciplinary instruction, collaboration, learning styles, etc. are weaved throughout the process. Watch as the students move from novice to proficient and begin to reach toward the distinguished level in their work.
The significant point is, the majority of the work is achieved in the first four steps of the process, before we even touch a video camera. The steps of the process can easily be modified to accommodate any common core content in a project based learning activity.
