15 Second Vocabulary Videos

Came across a great idea today about learning new vocabulary with technology in a novel way.  15 Second Vocabulary Videos (or animations).  It's actually a contest from NYT but you have to be 13 to enter.  Regardless, it would be a worthwhile activity for students to do to attack academic vocabulary.  Plus they have a lot of sample videos.

Read this blurb from

"The 15-Second Vocabulary Contest asks students to create a short video in which they pronounce, define, and illustrate (animation, drawing, acting, claymation, stop-motion) the meaning of one of" your academic vocabulary.
