How many minutes should the project be?
Ideally projects should be between 2-5 minutes. However there are always exceptions.
Can the teacher help with the project?
Projects must be student generated? Teacher(s) should teach the students how to use the tools however students should be the creator of the content. Students should write, record, edit and produce the final project.
What topics can we use?
Projects that follow those found on the “ideas” page should be fine. Please bare in mind that sensitive topics, while historically accurate, may not be appropriate for the intended audience. Please contact Florida Digital Memories if you have any questions prior to starting your project.
What applications should I use to create the project?
Ideally projects would be submitted in .mov or .wmv format. If projects are hosted on our server there is a greater chance that other classrooms will be able to view the content your students created. However, projects that are created with Web 2.0 tools must have an embed code so that the project can be included on this website.
