Abstract

How can educators use informal video production to facilitate educational, creative processes for students? What are effective approaches in teaching digital media production and literacy and what skills are best built by these creative processes? This analysis traces the successes and failures of three years of a month-long course for MIT students to script and host science, technology, engineering, and/or math-related YouTube videos to inspire youth and facilitate meaningful learning. This in-depth case study unpacks our instructional approach for and outcomes from equipping STEM-inclined students to become inspiring advocates for their fields.
