Cameras in the classroom: educating the post-TV generation
Today's students are growing up in a highly visualized world. Television, video games, and DVDs offer powerful visual images to attract the attention of children and young adults. Unfortunately for educators, the technology in the classroom is yet to catch up. Is it possible to use this exciting visual technology, which is so familiar to students, to benefit learning and education? Cameras in the Classroom brings all those possibilities to life. Filled with sound research and helpful tips, this book explains why there's such a need for visual learning and why an estimated one million teachers will be using video production over the next few years. Cameras in the Classroom offers practical advice for educators on the application of visual learning in schools, replacing archaic word-based teaching techniques with the visual competencies, how to incorporate videomaking into traditional K-12 subjects with limited resources, and more!
