A "playground" session during the 2014 SXSWedu Conference & Festival, which kicked off Monday in Austin, Texas, focused on teachers as executive producers of digital media, SmartBrief senior education editor Melissa Greenwood reports in this blog post. High-school teacher Humberto Perez and his students led participants through a series of lessons highlighting best practices. "I think teachers are really intimidated with video, but it's not that hard," Perez said. "You really let the students do the work like they did today. You just have to guide them."
