Team with Spike Lee to create a co-collaborative mobile production!

Nokia has teamed up with Spike Lee to encourage people of all ages (including students) to create mobile productions. They would like mobile submissions in order to create a co-collaborative film produced by Spike Lee! In a sense it is a mobile production Wiki! People can submit movies, images, audio, or text to help produce this film! The film is about music and Spike Lee encourages people to be "creative" with their submissions. This might be one way to introduce the cell phone as a data collection tool by having students collect and send media related to music using their cell phone. Spike Lee will introduce new Acts over time with different themes pertaining to music. Act 1 is on the theme of Humanity. Students can use any feature on their cell phone to submit their work (text, audio, video, or image capture). The site has many suggestions on how to collect media with a cell phone that is relevant and thoughtful. Even if you do not have your students participate in this particular project, the concept of a mobile co-collaborative production could be developed in your own classroom on a smaller scale. For example in a science class studying metamorphosis, the science teacher can ask students to collect mobile media of metamorphosis (images, sounds, movies, or text) for homework and then back in class the students can use a video editor to compile everything together into a coherent and creative production on metamorphosis.
