Learning = something new = growth = change = enrichment = enjoyment = transformation
Problem-based = seeking solutions = not one way to find answers
Creative = blank canvas = intimidating (!!!???)
Divergent thinking = thinking outside the box
There are many questions engaged in a multi-player game of Pong inside my head right now ...

... such as:
- - How we can use video to create authentic learning environments in today's classrooms?
- - What is the role of video in today's classroom? Has our perspective changed with the coming of YouTube?
- - How can video/multimedia be used to awaken creativity in learners?
I replayed Sir Ken Robinson's talk (animated by RSA): Changing Education Paradigms. He states that ,"Our children are living in the most intensely stimulating period of time in the history of the Earth." Yet, we have less engagement in our classrooms, less divergent thinking, less creativity (see Divergent Thinking at 7:40).
My own learning journey is beginning with a narrow focus - learning to understand the camera and its various complexities, learning about scripting and camera angles.
But as I learn, I hope to widen my focus to a broader picture of the role of video in education.
