This lesson has 4 parts:
Part 1--Students will first be given a short lesson on how to use the cameras. They will be paired in groups of 2-3 students. They will take a short video introducing themselves, then will switch with their partner so each person can experience speaking and video-taping each other. They will then learn how to delete videos that they do not want or need.

Part 2-- Students will be paired in groups of 3 and use a storyboard to plan where they will be going and what they will be saying. On the storyboard they will write the actual script, who will be doing the talking and who will be video-taping. The students will chose 8 different places to go and introduce 8 different people using the flip video camera.

Part 3--The students will go out in their groups, video-tape using their storyboards.
afterwards they will come back to class and preview their video.

Part 4-- The students will upload their video, save them to the shared school drive, add them to Youtube, or their school websites, or add to a podcast.
This was an excellent way to get them to work collaborately and to increase their writing ability.
