Session: Cinematic Narrative in the Classroom

Speaker: Rushton Hurly, Executive Director of Next Vista for Learning

Cost: $149

Description: This workshop will guide you on how to teach media literacy in your classroom to get students to stop blindly consuming what is being presented on the screen and start using it to tell their own story. We will help you develop the skills to create, collaborate on, and publish classroom videos. No longer are classrooms tied to expensive and complex cameras and editing programs. Using free online tools and machines that fit into your pocket, we will discover just how easy it is to create meaningful assignments using video. With the help of clips and projects, we will show you how using video in the classroom can help initiate wonder and spawn questions. When students and teachers understand the basics of media language, they can understand what is being show to them and communicate back with the tool that everyone seems to embrace today.

eCoach EdCamp

Coach edCamp is an incredible opportunity for eLearning coaches by any name to come together for a participant-driven day of learning. If you haven’t participated in edcamp style learning, you can expect a day during which you learn with other educators as we all share our experience and explore topics of our choosing.

What makes edCamp different is that there are no predetermined speakers or sessions: we truly make the day what we want it to be! Throughout the day, you will self-select the topics that you are interested in and join that group for collaboration and conversation. Coach edCamp is a full day event that is free to all attendees.
