​Has anyone tried using this lesson plan so that students create projects with Spark video instead of Premiere Pro?

Hi Brenda, thanks for the reply. You mentioned that you made a video, would I be able to see it? You can email me a link at school if you get some time.

Thanks, Debbie

That's correct Debra. The words highlighted in blue directs you to the information. If I'm not mistaken I think I replied your email with the details. If you did not received it I will be more than happy to resend it. Thanks for your interest in the resource.

Thanks for your feedback. I created this lesson plan inspired in my Action Research Project for my Master's Degree. The research was made with a target audience of middle school students (8th grade). The classrooms were I made the project did not have the equipment for students to accomplish the task, however I made a video for the 8th grade class using a very basic editing. If anyone can apply the lesson plan in their classrooms I will be more than happy to see it.

Ah, EMDT from Full Sail. Me, too. The paper I cited in the prior comment was my Lit Review. Congrats on navigating those waters, Brenda.

Mike, what a coincidence EMDT. It's great seeing more people from the EMDT. It was such a great experience. I'm EMDT '10.

I especially like the social component in the requirements. Hits several research findings (a few of which may be found in this paper).

You may find The Grateful Dead Scientists of value as well.

Thanks for the ideas in your resource. Keep pushing the envelope, Brenda!
