I have tried to get my students that are out on vocational training three days a week to film or take pictures of their workplace. They thought that, that was an embarrassing idea.
So know they been taking pictures with photo booth, looking like aliens and began a cartoon about aliens.
I also gave an assignment in my psychology class to film a presentation about stress, or other psychological strain. That went well, I tried to share one, but could not manage the technology. I need to work with that.
