After posting a piece on remixes I use with students, I received some interest in the unit that the remixes are used in. So, here is that unit. It focuses on developing student skills and knowledge in terms of copyright and Creative Commons (a real passion of mine), as well as in encouraging students to be media producers, not just consumers. As our students are pretty computer-savy, I don’t explicitly cover any movie editing techniques, but rather help students on an individual basis as the need arises.
