Recently I posted about the Film on the Fly video challenge. It works by logging into the Film on the Fly homepage and signing up with your mobile phone number. On a designated day you receive a text message with an "assignment" to film on your cell phone. I love this idea! What a great way to engage students in "real time" learning. It can extend concepts and ideas in school-based learning to the real world outside of the classroom. The only problem with this challenge is that some students cannot use video recording on their cell phone. Therefore I am going to start a Picture on the Fly challenge. On April 28th I will send out a text message with a topic for a picture. Then you can take the picture with your cell phone and text it to the address given in the message. The photos will automatically show up in a slideshow on my blog and we will vote for the best representation of the topic! I am using Textmarks to send the text messages and Flickr mobile to house the pictures. Anyone is welcome to participate!
