Arkansas Digital Learning Day theme:“Digital content creation: students teaching students!”
General description of rules and guidelines:
1. Students will create a short video teaching or demonstrating content from a grade-level standard. The focus is not so much on what type of content is chosen, but on the overall process of creating digital content that can be used to teach other students around the state or around the world!
2. All work from planning, production, editing, etc. should be student led to the extent possible – teachers are allowed to facilitate and direct the project as needed.
3. Videos should not exceed 5 minutes in total length.
4. Content must be considered appropriate for the K-12 educational environment, however, videos can be about virtually any topic students are interested in. Videos do not necessarily have to be technology centered in content.
5. Refrain from using any copyrighted materials or resources in the video. Things such as logo’s, music, art, photographs, etc... must have the owner’s permission to be used. Original music, art, photographs etc.… are acceptable.
6. Videos should not identify students by First and Last names. Identifying students by their full name and associated school district is not recommended. Using aliases instead of names is acceptable, as long as they are appropriate for K-12.
7. Fill out release forms for all students and adults that are in the video. Parents/legal guardians of students that are under 18 years of age must sign their child’s release form. It is the responsibility of the individual school district’s to insure that all release forms are correctly assembled and submitted to the iTunes U Coordinator. Please be sure to identify your school/classroom and include the title of the video with the release forms.
8. Upload completed video to the Google shared folder created for you by Donnie Lee, Arkansas on iTunes U Coordinator.
9. Contest is open to Arkansas schools only.
10. Deadline for submission is February 2, 2018.
