Using Video as a Literacy Tool

Check out this literacy tip on Childhood101.com about how to use video as a literacy tool.  Kids love to see themselves on film and with mini camcorders, digital cameras, and smartphones making it so easy to create short videos, you can easily create videos of kids putting on puppet plays, reading aloud, or being 'interviewed' or doing the interviewing.  The ideas here are mainly for younger children but the potential is huge for older children as well to create their own video productions... writing, editing, filming and making creative decisions are all great literacy skills. Think of the possibilities!
