Mixed-Media Projects for Student Engagement

Tuesday, October 03 2017
@ 9:00 AM- 10:30 AM
Mixed media can spark creative possibilities for designing engaging student projects that can develop visual literacy skills, sharpen descriptive writing skills, and broaden approaches to research. For example, imagine students: creating timelines that show changes over time, telling a story through mapping, interpreting an image using annotations, building and curating a digital image exhibit that explains and supports a point of view, and critiquing a video by adding comments and annotations.

During this workshop we will demonstrate a variety of free or low cost web-based applications that students can use for multimedia projects and discuss considerations for assignment design and assessment. By the end of the session you will be able to choose an appropriate application for your students’ projects and plan the steps to bring your assignment idea to fruition.
