More Ninth Grade Multimedia Projects

Over the last three months, many of you have created some very original and creative projects using Jumpcut, Eyespot, Movie Maker and iMovie. You've learned how to gather and upload media, how to edit multiple tracks in Audacity and how to drop all of your media on a video time line. Most of you know how to embed your projects on your blog page. Not bad for three short months.

The key now is to continue on that track. Continue to post work to your blog and your wiki. Continue to take photographs, shoot video, record audio and produce multimedia projects. You can even create a project with your cell phone. Continue to use Google Docs and Google Reader. Keep your personalized homepage organized and don't forget about Netvibes, Pageflakes and other sites like Zamzar, senduit and KeepVid.

Over the summer you will have plenty of time to put your learning and talents to work. Don't stop working just because you are out of school. Don't stop reading, writing and researching just because there are no more exams or due dates. The real work begins now. Show the world what you know. If you don't use it you'll lose it.

There were many fine projects that came out of this seminar, far too many to list, but here are three standouts.
