Here is an example from my school of one of our French teacher’s multimedia projects.  To demonstrate their learning of French vocabulary words about movies, the grade 8 students were asked to create a movie trailer of their favorite movie.  The students worked in pairs, created a storyboard in French, shot their films using school digital cameras, used Audacity to add voices and then put it altogher using Movie Maker.  If you’ve never tried to use Movie Maker, it is really simple and students love it.  Although I have chosen to show you an example of the work of some strong French students, the teacher who lent me this example was quick to point out that even the weakest students loved doing this project and were able to demonstrate their vocabulary in this way.  She went on to say that the students who like French the least in her class thought this project was awesome.
