cheap film and sneaky teaching

By using free software and inexpensive digital camera, Steve Brooks shows us how to ask the students to produce a video. That would be great fun and LOTS of things to learn. The technology is the minor objective here. As Steve correctly points out,
Students frequently know how to do the tasks, they just lack the ability to take a big problem (or opportunity) and break it down into its piece parts (lifecycle phases). By giving them a fun but challenging project and a methodology or “tool” to complete it, you will help them learn how to manage other challenging parts of their lives.

Want to post your students' final production for public viewing, consider some free media hosting such as Internet Archive or OurMedia. Freevlog has a step by step tutorial to show you how (or show your students how).
