[TIPS] - Kitzu - Find, Learn, Create

- - - snip - - -
What's a kitZu, Anyway?

At kitZu, you will find a collection of free, educational, copyright-friendly media resources. Students and teachers around the world can access pre-made collections, or "kits," of various digital assets - still images, background music, narratives, video and text. Each kit is built around a common theme, or curricular topic. For students, this becomes the construction paper of the 21st century --allowing them to create reports and projects filled with rich, immersive media for communicating their vision of whatever subjects they chose. AS they master the technology, they will progress from building projects with supplied materials to projects where they find or create their own resources -- a strategy that results in truly authentic assessment as measured by the projects produced.

Kit Contents

A digital kit is meant to provide students with the building blocks necessary to build video and multimedia projects that tell a story and demonstrate learning. A kit can be made up of:

  • - Photos
  • - Illustrations
  • - Animations
  • - Video Clips
  • - Audio Clips
  • - Document
- - - And... - - -
Don't forget that I've got more Moodle classes scheduled for March 1, 8, and 14, and April 11. All from 4-7 pm. Cost is $40.
