education and change


Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.

Education & Change

Review the following four samples of YouTube student projects on various aspects of education and social justice. After reviewing the video, construct a two- to four-minute presentation on what you have learned throughout this course. Using the course learning outcomes (CLOs) as your guide, create an audio visual way to represent these ideas. You may use Prezi, Storybird, YouTube, Vimeo, Animoto, or Stupeflix to create your video or presentation.

Get creative! You might consider the role of music in your video/presentation, including a song selection of your choice. Some presentations such as Present.Me allow you to embed a musical selection as background music. A more traditional slide-show presentation may yield better results if the name and artist of the song is shared. Recall how important music was for the activist movements from the Highlander Folk School. Once the two- to four-minute video is completed, post a link to it in the discussion board. Do not allow yourself to get lost in the technology. The most important part is the, content, effectiveness of your delivery of this information and your responses to peers.

Guided Response: Review at least three of your classmates’ videos or presentations and identify the strengths of the images, content, musical selection, and/or pacing of their presentation. Reminisce on the previous discussions that you both found profound or moving. Finally discuss next steps toward changing education. How will you do it? Could you work together? Do not be afraid to make plans here. Share what you want to build so that others may support you. Also, do not forget to respond to those who respond to you; continuing to build community with your peers is expected.
