Video: Basics of iPad video capture

Why utilize video with your students?

  • provides opportunities for students to be in charge of own learning
  • students live "media" - helps connect "school" life with "real" life
  • help students make connections to people and ideas beyond their usual frame of reference, communicating with authors, experts in various fields, etc.
  • students demonstrating knowledge with a video can show depth of understanding as they plan, write scripts and storyboards, edit, and publish
  • the process of creating the video can lead to more in-depth learning, creativity, failing, and then relearning, as they explore various tools
  • as a pre-teach: in a flipped environment, students can watch repeatedly, prepare ahead of time, early exposure to content
  • the positive correlation between student achievement and motivation: interesting, engaged learners create interactive, innovative, and engaging products
