Tasks:
  1. Class studies existing how to videos - Club Academia, Khan Academy, In Plain English videos, MathTrain.tv, Math Stories, Club
  2. In pairs or small groups, students select topic to be explained. (You will need at least 1 camera operator at all times if using a digital camera.)
  3. Students plan their project using index cards, storyboard, script, or outline
  4. Students practice their HowTo

  6. Students export their HowTo to a format usaable on a class wiki or blog.
  7. Students upload their finished HowTo to the class wiki or blog. Or, better yet, create a class/school Multimodal Math Wiki "Textbook"
  8. Students comment on videos using blog/wiki tools
  9. Optional - Get outside "experts" to comment on the students videos, possibly getting those experts to help develop a 2.0 version of the video.
