If you’re looking for filmmaking venues for you and your students, here are some sites I think you’ll want to checkout:
- 2009 World Math Day Video Contest – For grades 3 -8, Teacher Tube and Voyager Expanded Learning are partnering for this event. Includes prizes!
- BrainyFlix SAT Vocab Video Contest – I’ve already blogged about this contest, but checkout the samples posted to the site. What a great way for students to contribute to a resource they can also benefit from. Includes prizes!
- Letters to the Next President Video Campaign – In the fall, the National Writing Project and Google teamed to sponsor the Letters to the Next President Google Docs project. The NWP is now partnering with the Pearson Foundation for the next level – student-produced videos. The project “encourages filmmakers ages 13–18, with the support of their teachers, to voice their points of view by creating and sharing digital videos about the issues they want President Obama and his new administration to address.”
