Using Flip Video Cameras in the Classroom

Here's an informative video of Amy Bowllan, Director of Diversity and Educational Technology at The Hewitt School in New York City, talking about her students using flip video cameras for an African-American history project. My favorite quote is: "When I put the flip video cameras in their hands, they realized that the story was now theirs."

Video in the Classroom is filled with more terrific ideas for digital storytelling projects.

Have your students created video projects?


  1. Thank you, Diane, for sharing this video with your readers. Flips and other technologies, really make learning more of a hands-on experience, rather than a one dimensional "do as I say" expectation. Thanks again. :)
