Video production needs to be integrated into the curriculum. Media Literacy and Media Production are listed under core curriculum content standards in some states such as Massachusetts and others, like New Jersey, have just added Media Literacy into their core curriculum standards. K-12 teachers, now need training in the basic video production techniques and understanding of how to integrate media production throughout the curriculum to enhance learning. Although media production is considered to be a time consuming, difficult, and expensive process, educators need to integrate media production into their curriculum in order to prepare new generations for a media-rich culture. Rather than just being technical or peripheral, media production must be simple and central to the learning process.
