Such as… 2) Go to the Mematic app, select new meme, either take a new picture (Camera) or use an image on your iPad… Read more »
Combine (or “remix”) multiple OERs from multiple sources, of multiple media types (text, image, audio, video) and create a “new” OER from them. For example: http://trusoundcamp.net/ uses tutorials on recording from NSpireD2, editing from WikiEducator, and activity challenges from the DS106 assignment bank. And the site itself is shared back openly using a Creative Commons license.
Use one of the suggested OER collections or open search tools below, and identify some open online resources that you might use in your teaching. Are they ready for you to use already? If not, what would you need to do to use them? Share them back via responses to this challenge.

Here… Read more »

What can you express a 6-15 second video that will infinitely repeat? It takes a lot of work to make a short video! Use either Vine or Instagram apps to create short looping videos. You might create a stop motion animation sequence, or something that documents a natural process or a sequence of steps. Give strong consideration on how to make a seamless loop, by making sure the last frames in the sequence match the first. Start with a plan… Read more »
Create a montage of different voices/people answering the same question. From the latin phrase for voice of the people, Vox Populi (sometimes called “Man on the Street” interviews) is an effective way to introduce multiple perspectives into an issue or topic by asking the same question to a variety of people. The key is to form a question that allows for a wide variety of answers, one that also is not a simple “yes/no” response. Include an aspect of why… Read more »
