Create Digital Culture
Today’s digital world is a participatory culture. Outside of the classroom, your students can create and contribute in a variety of digital forms and in a multitude of venues.
HyperStudio is the one program that your students can develop these new media skills all in one place, without having to struggle with this and that different program depending on whether the desired project is video or comics. With HyperStudio they learn a simple skill-set in K-6 classes, and use that same skill set through High School.
Whether your students preferred style of expression is prose, imagery, animation, film, or a combination, HyperStudio’s drag and drop environment, game-like interactivity, and depth of features engages younger users as well as the most demanding technology-using students.
Digital innovators also want their work to exhibit an individual style. Whether it’s painting technique, point of view, establishing a mood, the cultural universe is being filled with unique works that reflect today’s attitudes and thinking.
Help your students be meaningful contributors to this new digital culture by giving them the tools that will help them express their individuality, and have them continue thinking about the subject area they are studying.
Move your students away from creating mere fragments and have them create comprehensive projects that are worth keeping!
"Research has borne out the potential for Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) as an aid to educators in support of each other, and, to improve the teaching and learning environment by modeling the self-organization and self-determination that are hallmarks of independent, lifelong learners. These characteristics help to reinforce the idea that everyone at school is both a teacher and a learner. My eCoach is the best tool of which I am aware that can support these self-organized, peer-learning groups.
Without question, My eCoach is a one-of-a-kind innovation that similar Open Source tools find difficult to approximate generally because there does not exist the same level of customer service. What My eCoach has made unique, no other has come close to creating the kind of safe, scaffolding environment of this system. Although a proprietary system, My eCoach is an "open environment" with the ability to integrate other school and district tools including Open Source tools."
