I have completed my Summary of Learning for ECI 832 - The Missing Digital Citizen. It is a mini-movie - action trailer searching for a missing person, whereby I provide information and scenes in various locations attempting to provide an overview of digital citizenship as learned in our course. At first I was just going to do a Powtoon as I wanted to create an animated film, but its free features were lacking and I wanted to live up to my previous Summary of Learning from ECI 834 - the Car Salesman. Since Powtoon produced a less than stellar result, I decided to add some dramatic flair and make a real mystery - action film, once again hiring my daughter in a supporting role. It took a fair amount of computer work, filming, and video / sound editting on WeVideo, and in the end I am happy with the result.
I learned a great deal in the course about the importance of digital citizenship and media literacy as well as, why and where these necessary skills should be taught; the community, the school, online and at home. One question I still have after all my learning and reflection is 'HOW' best to teach digital citizenship to youth and even adults? This will be the challenge I continue to explore as I move forward as an educator and parent. Hope you enjoy the video!
