Topics for discussion at virtual meetup
- Share remixes. Discuss, give feedback and critiques, especially in regards to attributions.
- What questions do you still have about attribution and remix? What issues did you come across?
- For the second mission below, decide whether to work in groups, on your own, or with your students. Decide on groups in this session.
- For those who would like to work with their students, discuss ways to incorporate this activity into existing curriculum. Is there a general unit this would fit into best? Or a unit on digital storytelling, library media, technology, multimedia creation, media literacy, or research in any field?
Your mission for the next week:
