I would like to design a research project for a high school social studies classroom that has each student choose their favorite person in history and compile research using reliable sources on the internet. The second part of the project would have students pick partners and interview each other, with one person being the interviewer and the other pretending to be the person they chose from history. Students will have to use video cameras to film it and then use Windows Movie Maker (or another movie maker program) to put the video together as kind of like a talk show. I was wondering if any one has done a project like this or have used technology in their social studies classroom. Was it successful and did students enjoy it?
