The annual SIGVE EduMachinima Fest is unique in that it is for both students and teachers. Those who enter their work will have the opportunity to create and share their manipulation of images, sounds, music and words effectively to convey a message as it relates to the theme this year, Fiero, or to any of the categories listed on the SIGVE EduMachinima application.
Developing a machinima product is one way to demonstrate skills in media design, self-expression, critical thinking, collaboration, and knowledge of multiple academic subjects. The skills are clearly aligned to Common Core standards and our digitally connected culture. Machinima entries should be submitted to bit.ly/machinima13 by June 7, 2013 at midnight PT. The Fest will take place at the 2013 ISTE Conference in San Antonio and winners will be announced at that time.
The Categories for Machinima entries in both student and Teacher categories are:
- 60 Seconds and Gone (Educational Ice Breaker)
