Remix-t: a new kit for remixing student projects

I’ve just discovered the ridiculously useful Remix-t and I cannot wait to share it with our teachers and students.

Created by the Learning Technology Lab at the Kaneb Center for Teaching and Learning, University of Notre Dame, the site presents a full-blown kit for inspiring media-rich, project-based instruction and suggestions for hours of engaging professional development.

Designed for the typical faculty member in higher education, who has had little experience designing or evaluating student work that depends on images, video, or sound, Remix-t also has serious value for K12 teachers (and teacher librarians) who want to help classroom teachers integrate media-rich student projects.

The portal is divided into three main sections.

1. ExploreWander through the ideas in our project gallery and browse the tool collection. Use the dropdown menu to explore media resources, learn about media design, and consider the amount of time and skill required for you and the students.

The section includes:

Don’t miss the quality selection of tips, tutorials and tools in these sections!

2. Build: Start by articulating learning goals for content and mechanics. Next, decide how to assess the students’ work. We recommend using a rubric. Finally, outline your strategy by creating a list of deliverables. Create a full description, including the amount of time needed for each step.  

The section includes 

3. Learn: Create a project yourself before assigning it to students. Next, if yours is a complex project, try a simplified version with students. Formulate a plan to assess how well the assignment met your goals.

The section includes:

Filled with rationale for use, tutorials, solid assessment models, project exemplars, and Creative Commons-licensed for non-commercial remixing itself, Remix-t offers so much I can use in my library and with my grad students tomorrow.
