A Conversation Starter

My goal: Create a three minute video that tells its own story, using other videos. My hope is that this will invite further exploration, conversation and learning.

Here is what I came up with:

    I am inspired by your idea! This is a great conversation starter for leadership teams or adult classes. I think it would also be fun to have students create their own “who am I” mix. Thank you for sharing.

    Glad you like it… thanks!
    That sounds interesting! Would their “who am I” mix be made up of videos of others or ones they create themselves? I think students could get pretty creative using music videos to create a mash-up poem/song about themselves.
