We’re excited not only to post the winning movies in the 2012 Show-Me a Movie Contest, but also to share a video about the contest, produced by Ladue High School.
Hear program manager Rebecca Morrison talk about the contest, and the importance of instructional technology and media literacy in the classroom. The contest is in it’s eighth year. Thanks again to Ladue View for taking on this project!
The judges gathered last week at Cooperating School Districts to evaluate the 2012 Show-Me a Movie entries. Using a rubric, they measured the videography, reflections, creativity, quality of content of each movie. This year’s new rule that movies must cite all sources within the film eliminated some otherwise great movie-making efforts. Choosing the winners in each category was a difficult task for the judges, and the difference between winning and non-winning entries, in many cases, was only a few points.
Thank you to all who submitted movies this year for Show-Me a Movie. We hope to get more movies at Cooperating School Districts from you and your students next year. Look for the winning movies posted to our SchoolTube channel!
