Flip Cameras, originally uploaded by Wordyeti.
My students from the small towns sprinkled around Georgia were initially a little reticent and puzzled at the prospect of adding video to their skillsets.
These little Flip cameras are about the simplest possible devices I know of for creating surprisingly decent online video. Already, they’ve learned some of the differences between print and video – mainly, that to do a video story you actually need someone looking into the camera and talking to you. And that is not as easy as it sounds … particularly when you take on an edgy project, like the one Team #3 did. They wanted to do a report on all the idle layabouts that line up for free beer from the beer factories, and then lie down on the river banks, arguing about soccer.
