#mosomelt week 3 “The power of mobile video”

This week we will explore mobile video production and augmentation via geolocation. You will be invited to collaboratively edit an interactive Google Map, and add a point of interest (POI) with a link to an embedded mobile video.

You will receive a link to the collaborative Map through the #mosomelt G+ Community

This exercise explores the affordance of smart mobile devices to use their built in GPS and content creation tools (camera, audio and text) to geotag user generated content and create user-generated contexts. User-generated contexts add a contextual layer of information that locates events and experiences within their specific geographic location. How can this add value and context to learning activities and experiences?
