Core Content Knowledge - is definitely at play with the basis of what the library represents being represented in the videos and purpose we have story boarded out. In brief, to reach the student and give them a wide array oif informaton that allows access to the fullest resurvces we have available to the student will be met.
Critical Thinking: Students are put into the role of student, as well as educator now! This will require them to meet an audience of faculty and students, so considering this is the final message is quite important!
Complex Problem Solving: There will be slight complex problem solving in how from storyboardng, to video, to having students practice the skills demonstrated, - making sure all parts of the process are following and beneficial from beginning to the end.
Working in collaboration: The student aides will need to collaborate once it is time for filming, multiple roles will need to opeprate to have this be a success. I think it might be beneficial to have cadets share their progress as they go through the production process.
Effective communicaton: So far we see each other, but we will need to use the basic email outside of school to prepare for upcoming parts. I saw the mention of Evernote, and I have no idea what that is, so I am eager to see if we can get a program like Letsmeet.com or another service that will allow us to casually share things we have done other than the familair blogs and facebook.
Learning how to learn : I think the aides are given a unique perspective as an aide and a student, and now playing educator as they put this project together for other students and facutly. They will realize later the impact of being technological oriented in getting themessage across to fellow peers and students in their classes.
Global Perspective - Absolute - in this school located in Mexico, there are cultural, communciative, as well as learning differences among all the students. These all provide a rich environment for creating a new product for learning to the general student body.
New Media Literacy Skills:
Play: Students that are library aides have an ideal situation, they can see the unfolding of problems as they come in the library and work through projects. The problems the students as aides experience themselves, as well see in other students, give them a checklist of items that they can address in the planned videos they plan for this storyboard/video tutorial activity. They can experiement with the ends they need to meet based on the above items.
Performance: I see the students able to put themselves in other's places as students vocalize the problems they have with various approaches to various educator's assignments. I think they all can relate to various students they know in classes that have different approaches, personalities, and understandings of content material, that will help them reach these individuals with customized tailorings of the content they will bring out.
Simulation: Real world processes are every day for a project like this, as if we do not imitate real world processes, such as finding magazines online for research, how to reference journals, properly and quickly find resources in the library, then the students will not be connected to the tutorials....so this is important to be less teacker/lecture like and more personable to help the students in what they need.
Appropriation : I think I have the opportunity as a teacher to let the students work with different mediums to produce a standard project, This will enighten the students on new technology while they are also learning how to manipulate this technolgy to best reach the audience.
Multitasking: The environment is IDEAL for the Library aides as they can scan the students that come, and they are in the classes of these very students. They are the best indicators of where students are having problems with specific assignments, and can address a tutorial via video and utube to address these needs and best help the students. In this way, scanning and shifting is done well as we progress through each day (we are on block schedule) so we meet and see each other every other day.
Distributed Cognition: I think I play an important role in this in the fact that I can choose other resources that the students might not be normally using, but in doing so, mental capacites will be stretched to make end objectives through the various types of media aides might not come into contact with. Ultimately, students that receive the video tutorials will ask, how was that produced? This should peak interest!
Collective Intelligence: I think with the aides all together in the library, during the process of this project, they can comapare notes and leave them electronicall behind for each other and have a forum for comments to help critique and refine their projects - allowing a form of technology to help with this since they are never all together during the day. Also, a common goal can be discussed with me individually, but allows them to communicate with each other in a variety of ways.
Judgement - I think the credibility an reliability will be best assessed when they actually get their hands in there and work with the sources, and this connects with the above trait too as they can come to a consensus on these sources they are utilizing.
Transmedia Navigaton - I see the modalities of communicaton, media/PR, as well as written in the form of the a storyboard, so several mediums are in use here to complete a final product.
Networking - This is a definite with the starting point of identifying how to better inform students, to the problems they have, and then incoporate these into a medum that will reach a wide audience of students that might understand some aspects of a topic but not every aspect of how the library is organized, reaching journals online, etc.
Negotiation - I think the multiple perspectives comes into play with some students who can Speak English, Spanish, a little of both, alot fluent, etc. Additionally, knowedge base is much different as students from Los Angeles, all their life in Mexico, Chile, Europe and many other places, so a diverse learning community is represented her, as wel as multiple perspectives to how they do research, and what is considered a norm for discovering new information.
