Service Through Video - A Next Vista Challenge

As many readers of this blog know, Next Vista for Learning is one of my favorite sites to share with others. Next Vista for Learning is a video sharing site unlike any other. Videos hosted on Next Vista are created by teachers and students for the purpose of sharing good news and good lessons with other teachers and students. Throughout the year Next Vista for Learning hosts challenges that are designed to get students and teachers thinking about creative video projects. This week the founder of Next Vista, Rushton Hurley, sent me an email about one of their recently concluded challenges. Service via Video was a challenge that asked students to create short videos about people working to improve their communities. The four most popular videos from that challenge are embedded below.
