Next Vista for Learning

http://www.nextvista.org/

Great site created by a very entertaining and articulate presenter, Rushton Hurley.   Basically, it’s a place where you can send videos made by your students to be shared.  Now, not just any video…there are “Light Bulbs” which are introductions to topics by students and teachers.  There are “Global Views” – student-made videos that describe life and activities in schools and communities around the world.  “Seeing Service” is a section dedicated to profiles of people who make life better for everyone.  If you’re interested, Rushton will even give you some pointers. If you are attending the CUE Conference, try to make one of his sessions!

Example films from Next Vista for Learning

Multiply by Nines

An Introduction to Bahrain

An inexpensive video camera that works great for student movie-making is the Flip video.  You can read more about it HERE.

Amazon is a great place to buy one.
