Activity Plans: Creating Multimedia Projects

  • Expanding Evaluation Strategies for Traditional and New Media Sources
    This activity gives students a set of evaluation criteria that can be applied to any source, regardless of its format or the search tool they used to find it.
  • Finding and Citing Creative Commons Images
    Students develop keywords to search for Creative Commons images, learn how to interpret CC licenses, and create attributions for the images they plan to use in their own multimedia projects.
  • Multimedia Project Planning
    Students plan their multimedia project by identifying the specifics of the content they need to find or create.
  • Podcast Planning
    As they outline a podcast, students consider questions related to their project’s purpose, audience, structure and tone.
  • Storyboarding
    This activity introduces the concept of storyboarding and guides students in creating their own storyboard for any type of multimodal project.
