Flip Camera Scavenger Hunt

On Wednesday, October 27th in class, we are going to work with partners to complete a scavenger hunt using Flip video cameras. After shooting a short video with a partner, you will submit that video by emailing it to a Posterous website. That website will cross-post your video to a special YouTube account. You and your partner will then add your scavenger hunt question and video to a collaborative Google Map we've created.

Phase 1: Project Guidelines Brainstorming

We are going to brainstorm the questions / ideas / assignments for the scavenger hunt together. We need AT LEAST 12 different questions / ideas for scavenger hunt videos, which can be readily obtained here on the UNT campus relatively close to Matthews Hall.

  1. With a partner, view at least one of these videos about video scavenger hunts to get ideas.
  2. Share your brainstormed ideas on this shared Etherpad: ietherpad.com/scavengerhuntideas

Phase 2: Project and Contest Guidelines

Our project and contest guidelines are available as a shared Google document:
