Sphero Disco Challenge from Messmore Ellementary in Utica
It was created by Alex and Will, 2 6th graders who spent their media center time and lunch periods learning about Sphero and making this challenge.
Last November, I was at a conference where the talented educator and Apple Distinguished Educator Don Goble shared some student examples of his video assignment where students build a video illustrating 6 words with 6 unique shots. His wonderful free One Best Thing Multitouch eBook explains and illustrates this entire project! This assignment was a perfect fit for our multimedia tech class because it provided opportunity for students to work on storyboarding, filming, and editing skills. It allowed for lots of creativity, but also was simple enough to fit into a time frame of a couple weeks.
Students worked in groups of 2 to plan and film their story idea. But then each student downloaded the video clips onto their own computer and edited their own version of the story. It is fun to compare the 2 versions and see how each student chose to interpret the story and edit the clips. Here are the videos from the class and links to the blog posts that the students made to self reflect on their work on this project.
