Anything is possible it you have a willing mind. And you're dead on the money when you say that we don't need complicated equipment and software to get the job done. School 2.0 is as easy as the [free] Web 2.0 tool floating around the web and sitting on teacher's desktops...

Thanks for the comments!

I think it's important to share that you could shoot video on a simple digital camera and then use MM to edit a short movie. Sometimes teachers think they need to learn how to use a complicated piece of equipment when some of the basics are right in the drawer of their desk.

Yes, it is an inside look at how we are trying to use Classroom 2.0 technologies in the classroom. I did most of it, but the students were busy listening to podcasts/mp3 files, using moodle, and creating presentations. Time is always a factor. However, my students all navigate my sites rather well and understand some basic search functions.

Like I said in my blog post, we are moving toward classroom 2.0. The video did however spark a lot of interest in being more creative with technology. This year is coming to an end quickly, but next year I hope to use some of the center of technology teachers and get their students as well as mine to have a more hands on role in the production of the video.

Yes, I shot the video and dubbed the music with windows movie maker at home. Believe it or not I shot the video with a Kodak easyshare 4.0 mega pixle camera not a video camera. I converted the Quicktime file using flash to make them compatible with movie maker. I had to tweak it a bit! Studio 10 is better but it doesn't like the wmv files. Sorry about the geek talk. We have better tools in our center of technology and some great teachers there working with video. The future looks bright. BTY, most of my students are 8th-10th grade students.

Thanks for asking…
