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!
"I use My eCoach for one of my main sources of communication for my students and families. Pinellas County, FL is required to use Moodle. This is a tool that is primarily meant for the students as a teaching tool, and a way to gather grades. Ultimately, these results are intended to transfer into our on-line grading system (Portal). I have taken the on-line training provided to do this; however, I do not have the time in the day or the confidence to try this without having a core group of teachers to reflect and share results with.
At this point, the combination of Moodle and Portal are so new that there is a minimal amount of teachers that can & do use Moodle/Portal effectively. My eCoach provides this support system for me. I am confident that I can inquire with anyone on my team, or Barbara Bray & I know I will get the support I need."
