One way to enhance students learning and get them engaged is through assigning them work that involves multimedia, video projects fit in perfectly for this purpose. There are several advantages for making video projects part of your teaching. When working on a video project , students get to collaborate, pool sources, conduct searches, do some writing, experiment with presenting and finally sharing.
Sharing the final product with a bigger audience than their immediate peers in the classroom is one of the best thing students love about creating video projects. In video projects, almost all of the areas of literacy are at work and now with mobile technology, students can work on these video projects anywhere with or without internet connection.
