Video Mash-up and Ch. 3 Book Club

Today we were asked to create a type of media mash-up video illustrating a key concept from Willingham’s Ch. 3 for our Book Club time. We were given little time, a lot of resources and needed to produce a video with or without a partner. Many of our products were not finished or not finished well. The feeling of not meeting the challenge or feeling high stress at the lesson’s end stuck with many of us. We are to keep in mind what we are asking our students to think about–the technology or the actual content of our lesson? Are we planning activities that are appropriately challenging for our students?
