Abstract

This paper describes an innovative course that blends together online learning with a pre-service teacher experience in the context of a technology camp. Pre-service teachers engaged with the designing digital music, stop-animations, games, and multimedia productions; and subsequently, worked with rising 3rd to 6th graders to teach them how to create the same type of artifacts. Pre-service teachers responded to a prompt about student-generated multimedia both before and after the experience. These data were analyzed using the constant comparative method. Results collapsed into four themes: learning together, produce or consume, expression of ideas, and 21st century skills. Results and discussed and an overview of the course is provided.
