ECU graduate student awarded for educational video


ECU graduate student Ken Hubbard won a first place award for his educational video posted above.

 

An East Carolina University graduate student won a first place award for his educational video, “Matchstick Rockets,” which demonstrates laws of physics through creation of miniature rockets using household matches.

Ken Hubbard won the Immersive Learning Awards competition, an international competition sponsored by the Association for Educational Communications and Technology.

Immersive learning refers to an environment in which students learn while completely absorbed in the educational material presented to them. The winning products in the competition meet learning objectives while incorporating technology and interactivity to engage students in the learning process.

The competition was open to graduate students, faculty, corporate trainers and K-12 teachers. Quality of submitted multimedia presentations as well as effectiveness in demonstrating learning outcomes were considered in determining the winner.

Hubbard is pursuing a master of arts in education in instructional technology at ECU. He completed the video as part of an assignment in a summer course, web teaching design and development.

  1. Well, Ken Silver has received and posts hundreds of testimonies
    on his website to show that his lottery system
    does actually work. Try a locate on google by typing in ‘itunes
    gift card +forum ‘ ‘ without the quotes and you might get folks swapping codes like it was a an underground economy.

    U2 frontman Bono has apologized for his band’s latest album being automatically added to
    millions of users’ i – Tunes playlists last month in a free promo tied
    in to the i – Phone 6 release.

  2. Its like you read my thoughts! You appear to know
    a lot approximately this, like you wrote the guide in it or something.
    I think that you just could do with a few p.c. to force the
    message house a little bit, however instead of that, that is excellent blog.

    An excellent read. I will certainly be back.
