This project was inspired by a tweet in early March of 2013. Karla Olmos of the dramateachersnetwork.wordpress.com blog tweeted that it would be World Theatre day on March 27th . I came up with the idea of creating a video using Adam’s “All the World is a Stage” monologue from Shakespeare’s “As You Like It.” Using Google Drive, I had teacher upload their footage to a shared folder on Google Drive and created an “mashup video” with all the schools involved. We had two schools from the United States and two schools from Australia participate. The finished “mashed-up” video was placed on my YouTube channel. http://youtu.be/Pu2A71jNxI8. It was great to have students involved from halfway across the world.
Thank you to following teachers, their schools and especially their students for
being part of the video that inspired the creation of
the World Theatre Video Project.
