Mix and Mash, the Great NZ Remix and Mashup competition was launched last night and all this year’s amazing categories have been revealed! With Mix & Mash's focus on New Zealand images, data, words, video and music, you and your students have six weeks to compete for prizes by remixing Kiwi digital content into beautiful new works.
Some of the fantastic remix categories that are now open to enter are:
- Digital storytelling - the best digital remix that tells “A New Zealand Aotearoa Story”.
- Photo remix - the best photo remix that explores the theme “Past and present, then and now, yesterday and tomorrow”.
- Infographics - the best visual representation of complex knowledge, information and/or data.
- Literature remix - the very best work of literature that creatively re-mixes our selection of talented NZ writers’ works.
The guide gives you information, activities and ideas to confidently create a remix from material you know you have the rights to reuse. It shows students why copyright and licensing exist, how they work, and how they can apply licences to their own work through simple information, suggestions for activities, and links to more resources. The latest version also has lots of ideas for the categories you are most likely to be interested in. By using it, you and your students will be able to participate in the global remix community while demonstrating creativity and integrity.
This competition is a great way to extend learning in a range of curriculum areas and to teach practical application of 21st Century skills and learning around communication, design, creativity, ICT, information and the very real issues around reusing digital content ethically.
