Our Brainyflix video contest just ended, and I wanted to thank you for helping us get the word out. We got 800 submissions from across the country!
That said, MIT was really happy with the results and will let us run another contest, so we're going for it! But this time, we're gonna have kids create Brainypics flashcards - which are images and sentences paired up with a one of our SAT/ACT words. The contest ends May 22nd, and there'll be iTunes and a cash prize like last time. To boot, we'll double the payout if the kids can hit a certain goal. More details at brainyflix.com/main/contest_rules.
We'd love to have your kids involved. Do you mind passing my message along to students and your HS colleagues again?
Cool. Technology-wise, you basically just need a video recording device that can upload video to a computer, which is most videocameras these days, or maybe even just a built in computer webcam. You will also need editing software, but most computers have very basic versions of that... And that is it! You can then upload the video to Youtube or Schooltube, which are free.
Hi Liz. I was wondering if you and your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
