Steve Dickie’s Teaching With Technology blog recently had a post about making a Star Wars video.You can now mix and match nearly 300 different clips from Star Wars movies to make your own short video.
English Language Learner students (and others) would have a lot of fun doing this. It’s an excellent language development experience since students would have to create something that actually made sense and followed some reasonable sequence. Steve has a nice example on his blog.
I’ve put the link on my Examples of Student Work page under Student Videos.
Terrific idea, this is the type of interaction students really enjoy. I have done something on the same theme but with photos from a digital camera and had the students make up a small book complete with written cations on the photos. Very comic like, the students put a ton of effort into the project.
Here’s an elementary student video of Star Wars you might enjoy:
It’s a lot of fun to watch. Great work!
