This chapter describes how digital video (DV) production can be integrated into K-12 education. It describes how recent technological developments in digital video technology provide an exciting new way for teachers and students to collect, share, and synthesize knowledge. It argues that DV can provide tangible, real-world benefits in student learning, as it requires that students work actively and collaboratively on authentic real-world tasks. Furthermore, DV projects can be tied to technology literacy and curriculum standards. The reader is guided through the stages of the DV production process, and specific K-12 projects are described. Guidelines for choosing hardware and software are provided. Parent and administrative concerns about the use of DV are discussed. The goal of this chapter is to provide K-12 teachers and administrators with the information they need to integrate digital video production into the curriculum.
