Abstract: Classrooms take on the energy of high-charged film festivals when educators add powerful, video tools to classroom technologies. Confidence grows as students communicate ideas through the excitement of the moving image, the spoken word, sound effects, text and creative transitions. Video, production connects students with cross curricular content and engages them in a learning process made richer by close collaboration with people of varied talents and learning styles. The ability to communicate a message to an audience is one of the most important skills we teach our students and video is simply another communication medium. This presentation seeks to inspire confidence in the process and review the resources needed to guide pre-service and in-service educators to add video to their list of technology tools and give students a new means of expression employing the most powerful communication vehicle of their generation.
