Supporting research

Moviemaking is an excellent way to extend the learning and have kids showcase what they know. It is great for assessment, as it gives kids a way to show all they have learned, not just pick a few answers on an paper and pencil test. Using broadcasting in the class engages students and gives them a wider audience for their work. It improves their thinking, listening, and builds independent learners. As we all know, you learn moer when you have to teach information to others, and creating a movie or podcast is the ultimate teaching moment.
