PART A: This is a great way to create a presentation that is out of the box. Assigning a famous person or some other standard
and having the students create a movie out of it allows for more creativity on their end, and less PowerPoints on your end as the
teacher. It enhances their technology skills as well.

Brief Description of Learning Experience: What learning standards will be addressed? What will
students and teachers do? How will the project be introduced? How long will it take to complete? What
audience will use/care about the multimedia projects students are creating? How broad is this
audience? How will student work be assessed and by whom? Who will provide feedback to students
about their work? This will be a great way for students to see the impact Cesar Chavez had on American history and to
have a visual of his life. This would be a great video to show after a flipped classroom reading on his life and
Student Engagement/Higher-Order Thinking: What LoTi level would this lesson be and Why?
Which indicators of Engaged Learning are strong and why? This activity remains as a level 2

until the students are allowed to actually put information on their own Movie.
Importance of technology: Why is using a multimedia authoring tools critical to the project? Could
the project be completed without this technology? What would be lost without using it? What other
types of technology, if any, are going to be used in the learning experience? Without technology this could
not have been completed. This allows for a great knowledge of specifically Movie Maker. Students learning this early, will
allow for presentations to run much more smooth in the future.
Inspiration (optional): If you used existing multimedia projects as a model for your project (whether
in part or whole), include the URL(s) so we can visit. Explain what concepts you borrowed from

Internet Safety and Student Privacy: Briefly discuss some possible issues surrounding internet
safety and student privacy that could arise while implementing this learning experience and explain
how youd minimize risks to students/yourself, alleviate any fears by parents/administrators, and
follow school districts Internet Safety/Use Policy. Having students search for their own pictures can cause a
problem. Having a specific site for them to go to access pictures can make the world of difference. Having them to save
the links to the pictures for the credits slide will also help in the safety of the search.
