Have you seen this amazing tri-class remix project?
It is a creative way to inspire remix, design, and critical thinking.
- Three classes
- Each make a silent video on chosen theme and pass it on (flick it on) to the next class.
- That class interprets it and adds VoiceOver and credits and flicks it on.
- The next class interprets emotion and action and adds music and credits, then flicks it on.
I wonder if there is a reflection/dialogue component to explain/discuss the choice in interpretation and remix to consider how the original projects morphed into something same/different than original intent?
This a project worth trying: students must interpret what they see in the context of the theme, then add their interpretation before passing it on for the next interpreters. Each group thinks through a different part in the making of a video. Imagine the learning conversations and debriefing!
How would you extend or remix this project?
